bakhterets and tarch. XVI century

"some, wrote about the Moscow riders Herberstein, ambassador of German emperor with the court Ivan III, have annulated armor and breast armor, which consists of the connected together rings and the plates, located like the fish scale". This armor was called "bekhtertsom", or "bakhtertsom" (from the Persian "begter" - kind of armor). Bakhterets was collected from of the located by vertical numbers oblong plates, connected by rings from two short lateral sides. Lateral and plechnye sections were buttoned by buckles or belts with the metallic tip. For the production bakhtertsa was used to 1500 plates, which were mounted in such a way as to create dual or triple coating. To bakhtertsu was increased pearl hem, and sometimes winch and sleeve. The average weight of this armor reached 10-12 kg, and length - 66 cm.
 
If bakhterets in Xvi-xvii centuries receives in Russia wide acceptance, then panel at this time loses its combat designation, it becomes ceremonial- ceremonial object. This relates also to the panel, whose navershiye it consisted of metallic "hand" with the blade; into this "hand" entered the left hand of soldier. This type of panel with the blade, called "tarch" (from the Arab "stage" - "panel"), was used with the defense of fortresses, but it were encountered extremely rarely.
