Akinji - Short Turkish laminated bow



Akinji, or Akinci in Turkish means Raider, and was a name for the irregular troops (light cavalry) that prepared (disturbed, weakened and demoralized) the enemy in the Ottoman era. They usually preceded the Ottoman forces and continuously disturbed the enemy with their attacks. Their tactics included fast attack and retreat, often leading the enemy in pursuit into a deadly trap while annoying and urging them to continue chasing them by shooting their arrows backwards from horseback. They weren't regular, paid soldiers, they made a living of the pillaging after the battles. Their devastation and destruction was similar to a pack of golden jackals who attacked a farm killing all the cattle, sheep and poultry they could.
