armor is scaly. XI century

In Xi-xii centuries the basis of horse troops composed the heavily armed riders -kope1пki. Into equipment of this soldier entered one or two spears, sabres either sword, sulitsy or bow with the arrows, bludgeon, bulava, are thinner the combat hatchet, and also the defensive armor, which includes known already from THE XI century scaly armor. Armor together with the panel we could sufficiently reliably protect horseman both during collision sshibki on the spears, with which usually began the horse battle and during the hand-to-hand battle, which followed the kopeynym impact.
 
Scaly armor consisted of the steel plates, which were fastened to the leather or cloth basis only from one side. With the fastening the plates were moved by one to another, and in the center each of them was riveted to the base. Such armors were length to the thighs. Hem and their sleeves were sometimes lined by longer than entire armor by plates.
 
The image of similar "armor of made of planks" can be met on the miniatures and icons Xii-xiv it is age-long, and also on the frescoes of Uspenski cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin; on the carved wooden throne of Ivan grozny (1551), who is stored in this cathedral.
 
Scaly was more elastic in comparison with the lamellar armor, since the convex "fish-scale", fastened to the basis only from one side, they gave to soldier, dressed in this armor, large mobility, which was especially important for the horse soldier.
