For the first time this form of setting armor is mentioned in 1548, propagation obtains, obviously, somewhat earlier. Yushman, or yumshan (from the Persian "dj awshan"), represents chain armor jacket with that intertwined on the breast and the back by the collection of horizontal plates. To the production of yushmanov. of usually weighed 12-15 kg, went about 100 plates, which were mounted with the small allowance to each other. Yushman could rush above the hauberk, had complete section from the neck to the hem, it were put on into the sleeves as caftan, being buttoned by fastenings - "kyurkami" and loops. Sometimes the "boards" of yushmana were directed by gold or silver: this armor could cost very dearly. The hands of soldier, dressed in yushman or in another form of armor, protected from the elbow to the wrist by naruchami. In hands naruchi were connected by rectangular plates - chrevtsami, and to the hand they were fastened with belts.
