"... It itself on the horse - as falcon is clear; armors on the powerful arms are strong: kuyak and armor is clean silver, and hauberk on it is red gold "(bylina about Mikhayle Kazarinove).
 
Kuyakom was called armor of the metallic plates, rectangular or round, collected each separately to the leather or cloth basis. Kuyaki were manufactured with the sleeves and without the sleeves; had hems how caftan. Kuyak could be strengthened on the breast and the back by large armour boards - "panels". Such armors exist in Russia with THE XIII on THE XVII century and have close analogies in West Europe. Term itself "kuyak" appears only in THE XVI century.

Pipe was the most extended musical tool, which accompanied army in the march. First military pipes were straight lines, without the elbows, that resembled herdsman horn. Later than the pipe made of three elbows, located on the equal distance from each other, fastened with transverse cross connections. Sometimes to the pipes fastened for the adornment quadrangular "curtains" from taffeta or brocade with the silk, gold-plated or silver-plated fringe and the brushes. In the marches the pipes hid into the cloth cases - "nagalishcha".
