    FACTION DESCRIPTION





    In the former Roman province of Bithynia which the Seljuks had taken from the Byzantines about a century ago, Osman I founded a small principality which in following centuries would be called Devlet-i Aliyye-i Osmaniyye (Great State of the Osman), or simply Osmanlı. Osman's father Ertughrul managed to lead a group of Turkish nomads from Eastern Anatolia to Bithynia in the 13th century and got the approval of Seljuk authority which led to the foundation of the future empire. Ertughrul's son Osman cleverly used the turmoil in the region and made a name for himself after his military successes against local Byzantine lords but he didn't live enough to see Bursa conquered which he greatly desired. His son Orhan fulfilled this wish by conquering Bursa in 1326, then he made it his capital and transferred his father's body to Bursa. Under Orhan the newly founded state greatly flourished, thanks to his clever reforms and tolerance to newly conquered subjects. The Ottomans became one of the major powers in the region, what was once the tomb of fallen Seljuks became the cradle of Ottomans. The latter, who had come from the east in tents soon dominated the Asia Minor. But their expansion was not yet at an end. The goals they had set themselves were the conquest of the Balkans and the capture of Constantinople. Osman's lifespan was not enough, but now the task of fulfilling his dreams is undertaken by his sons and grandsons.

    BUILDINGS




    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Public Kitchen (Imarethane): Public kitchens are places where the poor and needy can feed themselves once or twice a day, usually found in large public charity complexes called "Kulliye".

    Caravanserai (Kervansaray): The word "caravansarei" derived from "caravan" (travellers) and "sarai" (or sera) meaning home or inn. A caravanserai was a roadside inn where caravans could rest and recover from the day's journey. Caravanserais supported the flow of commerce, information and people across a network of trade routes of Asia, North Africa and South-Eastern Europe.
    Most typically it was a building with a square or rectangular walled exterior, with a single portal wide enough to permit large or heavily laden beasts such as camels to enter. The courtyard is almost always open to the sky, and along the inside walls of the enclosure are ranged a number of identical stalls, bays, niches or chambers to accommodate merchants and their servants, their animals and merchandise.
    Caravanserais provided water for drinking (for animals and people), and for washing and ritual ablutions. Sometimes they even had elaborate baths. They also kept fodder for animals and had shops for travellers where they could acquire new supplies. In addition, there could be shops where merchants could dispose some of their goods.






    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Turkish Bath (Hamam): The hammam, like its early precursors, Roman thermae, is not exclusive to men only - hammam complexes usually contain separate quarters for men and women. Being social centers, in the Ottoman Empire, hammams were quite abundant, and were built in almost every Ottoman city. Integrated in daily life, they were centers of social gatherings, populated on almost every occasion with traditional entertainment (e.g. dancing and food, especially in the women's quarters) and ceremonies, such as before weddings, high-holidays, celebrating newborns, beauty trips, etc.

    Hospital (Dar-us Sifa): All kinds of health care was provided for free, including musical threapy for the mental disorders as well as hot water treatments as learned from the Romans (Therapia was the name of such location close to Istanbul, where patients would seek cure. Today the area is still called Tarabya).


    UNITS


    AZAP ARCHERS

    Azaps (Azabs), litterally bachelors, were organized as a military unit during Murad I's reign in the mid-14th century. In the beginning, they were selected from single Turkish males of Asia Minor; but after the 16th century, males living near the borders were also enlisted as Azaps. In battles, the Azaps were positioned in front of the Janissaries, and were the first to face the charge of the enemy. After slowing down the enemy advance and causing casualties among them they usually parted and allowed the Janissaries to advance. After the enemy was stunned with both cannon and musket fire, the azaps and Janissary were ordered to close the gaps around the enemy, usually resulting in defeat of the enemy. From the 14th up to the 16th century, the Azaps were largely in the form of light archers that didn't have uniform and didn't wear armor. Their weapons consisted of sabres and composite bows and they used shields as protection.

    PIYADE INFANTRY

    Osmanli Piyade - Regular Ottoman garrisons were maintained by a variety of troops, both Muslim and Christian. Average garrison infantry was poorly armed and armoured with only the basic of weapons and no armour. Apart from a shield, their only protection was a substantial turban, which could stop most blows to the head. Staff weapons were used, in this case a tirpan pole axe. These units are at best average. They could not possibly hold the line, and are best employed as flank guards, skirmishers, militia to keep the order and for attacks form a favourable position. Of course, they can also be used as cannon fodder, to force the enemy to waste ammo and tire fighting lower quality troops, thus making it easier for the more prestigious forces to win the day – a tactic the Ottomans used with great success.

    YAYA INFANTRY

    To replace the irregular nomads and ghazis , Orhan organized a separate standing army of hired soldiers paid by salary rather than booty or by timar estates. Those soldiers organized as infantry were called Yayas (literally "Infantry" in Turkish). They rapidly lost their importance with the formation of the Kapukulu and Tımar corps and ended up as an auxiliary unit, they used a variety of weapons.

    MARTOLOS MILITIA

    Believed to be originated from a kind of Byzantine militia system called Armatoloi, the Martolos in the Ottoman Empire originally referred to Greek renegades who acted generally as scouts and spies in early Ottoman armies. With the expansion towards the Balkans the term Martolos is extended and used for local recruits who acted as scouts and guards in frontier regions. Usually acting as a support unit the Martolos were relatively poor in equipment, yet experienced enough to fight in pitched battles and also in skirmishing engagements.

    JANISSARY GUNNERS

    The Janissary Gunners were known Tufengchi or Tufengendaz Yenišeri. As an elite corps they have the best equipment, and are the first troops in the Ottoman army to use the newly invented musket. Tufengchi musketeers were armed with a variety of muskets, swords, axes and daggers. During the 15th century, arquebuses were more common but their musket varieties increased rapidly during the 16th century. Muskets incluided giant trench muskets, flintlock muskets, matchlock muskets, carabines for cavalry and many more musket types. They became very proficient in its use, although their tactics differed from the usual way in which firearms were utilized. Instead of firing in unison to present a ‘wall of lead’ to their enemies, the Janissaries relied on their individual marksmanship.

    JANISSARY ARCHERS


    The Janissary Archers were known as Okchu or Kemankesh Yenišeri. These Janissaries are expert archers equipped with powerful composite bows. They usually wear some armour underneath their robes. The armaments of Okchu archers were similar to those of the musketeers; the only difference was their composite bows, which they used instead of muskets. Years of dedicated training and experience made them deadly both with a bow and in melee battle, and their discipline was legendary. Due to their light armour, they can be used as a fast moving light infantry, but their hand-to-hand prowess makes them capable of standing up to a much better equipped opponent in melee. The number of archer ortas were rather small, and most of them were turned to musketeers in the 15th century. Bow types included short composite bows, "Chagra" crossbows and "Zemberek" heavy crossbows, which shot bolts as thick as a human thumb.

    SOLAK GUARD ARCHERS

    Solaks is the name of the Janissary Ortas (Units) of 60 to 63 men, originally formed during the rule of Bayezid I. They started to act as a foot guard unit of the Sultans in during the reign of Mehmed II. Solak literally means left-handed because the two Solaks accompanying the Sultan on his right side used their left hands to shoot in order to not turn their back to the Sultan which was considered a great insult. The Solaks were carefully handpicked among the most strong and intelligent Janissaries and were extremely skilled with their composite bows, as well as in melee.

    HUMBARAJI GRENADIERS

    The Humbaraji were the Grenadier Corps of the Ottoman armies. Altough it's foundation date is unclear, the Humbaraji Corps must have been founded in late-15th century or early 16th. Humbarajis were consisted of grenadiers who were used to throw grenades into the besieged forts. Their other duty was also to manufacture Humbaras (grenades) and mortars. The Humbaraji Corps were reformed by Comte De Bonneval, a French officer in Ottoman service, during Mahmud I's reign. The Humbarajis were commanded by a Humbarajibashi and even tough the humbarajis were a part of the Kapikulu Topchu Corps, there were some fief-holding humbarajis in garrisons.

    JANISSARY HEAVY INFANTRY

    The Turkish word “yenišeri” meant new soldier. Armoured Janissary Nefers wore chain armors supported by small iron pieces and helmets; they carried a variety of swords, battle axes, polearms, hooked spears, maces, lassos, daggers and a variety of shields ranging from small round shields to rectangular Balkan-style shields. They formed the first Ottoman standing paid army (1376). The Janissaries are mostly formed from a levy of Christian boys, but also include prisoners of war who have converted to Islam. These elite heavy infantry are expected to lead the infantry charge into battle with courage and honour.

    NEFER JANISSARIES


    The Nefer Janissaries were known as the 'Ztrhli Nefer' or the "armoured infantry soldier". These were janissaries equipped with heavy armour, and used as assault troops. They operated in 30 to 100 strong bands of hand-picked soldiers They were not an actual Orta, but were in fact ordinary Janissaries released from their respective Orta and given a special status of 'Ztrhli Nefer'.They were better protected than other Jannisaries wearing heavy mail armour and a round iron plate shield which was heavy enough to protect even against arquebus fire at extended ranges. These troops were tasked with storming the enemy strong points and breaches in the walls, often under the cover of darkness and using stealth and surprise.

    VOYNIK


    The Voynuks were Christian auxiliaries of Bulgarian, Wallachian or other Balkan origin, who in exchange of having their own fiefs were expected to perform military duties. Voynuks served as both infantry and cavalry, but as an auxiliary force they were largely infantry. Their minor officers were known as Lagators, Christians in origin, and their major officers were called Voynuk Begi, Muslim officers appointed by central government. In peace time, they had to guard the horse herds and maintain security in the countryside.

    SERDENGECTI HEAVY INFANTRY

    The Serdengešti, known as 'head riskers’, ‘soul stakers’ and other such names were 30 to 100 strong formations of hand picked and highly motivated (some would say fanatical) soldiers. The ones coming from the ranks of the Yenišeri were being referred to as serdengešti, while the soul stakers (canbazan) usually came from the ranks of the azaps. They were given the best and heaviest equipment Ottomans could muster, full mail-and-plate korazin, and a metal shield which was heavy enough to protect even against arquebus fire at extended ranges. These men were tasked with storming the enemy strong points and breaches in the walls, often under the cover of darkness and using stealth and surprise. Their primary role was in sieges, in which the Ottomans excelled, although earlier in the period they would also find themselves employed in set piece battles as well.

    Default Tsardoms Total War - FACTION PREVIEW: Ottoman Empire

    CAVALRY

    AKINCI

    Border areas between the Ottoman Empire and whoever was unlucky enough to be on the other side were place of continual strife and low-level warfare. In such circumstances raiding and counter-raiding was the principal activity of the light cavalry. This was the kind of war in which the Ottomans excelled as their raids would ruin the largely agricultural economy of their opponents. The main blow would inevitably follow and the decisive battle would be fought against an enemy already shaken and bleeding.
    Both in guarding the borders and raiding, the Akinci light cavalry were the Ottoman Empire’s watch dogs. They would strike deep into the enemy’s rear (at times going as far as Friuli, the mainland of Venice) and retreat with tens of thousands of slaves. The Sultan would further encourage them with promise of coin for the head of every slain enemy soldier. The akinji had the grizzly habit of taking the heads of fallen enemies which brought fear into the hearts of their enemies.
    They were useful in a set piece battle as well, and many victories were secured by their timely charge at the exposed rear or flank of the enemy, the battle of Mohach being one such example. On campaign they would range far and wide, securing river crossings, foraging and gathering intelligence, as well as denying the same to the enemy force.
    The akinjis were very cheap to recruit and maintain, as they were irregular cavalry. They fought for the prospect of the spoils of war, and would disperse as quickly as they assembled; only to come together again as the need arose.

    TURKOMAN TRIBAL CAVALRY

    The Turkmens also known as the Oghuz Turks were one the largest of group of Turkic tribes in 8th century. They mainly inhabited the east of the Caspian sea and the Aral lake. In the 10th century formainly political reasons a large part of the Turkmen left their ancestral lands and moved south into the lands of Khwarezm and Khorasan. Under the leaders Tughrul and Chagri Begs they formed a new political entity and rapidly conquered large part of middle east. Their first raids into Anatolia also started during this period, although the first moves with the intention of conquering Anatolia started after the Battle of Manzikert. With the help of weakened Byzantine defenses, Turkmen waves rapidly overran the country and under the Seljuks of Rum permanently established themselves in Anatolia. That was the first Turkic wave into Anatolia, the second and way bigger wave started after the Mongol Invasion in Central Asia and Middle East. Hundreds of thousands of nomads flooded into Anatolia in waves and rapidly overran the last remaining Byzantine bastions of western Anatolia. Under the lead of their Begs they established their own political entities. Ertughrul, father of Osman was also one of them. Being from Turkic stock they are skilled riders and archers although their undisciplined behavior has always been a problem and therefore one should not completely rely on them.

    DELI LIGHT CAVALRY

    The Delis were a proffessional unit of Serhadkulu(Frontier Corps) presumed to be raised in large extend first by Gazi Husrev-Bey and Yahya Pashazade Bali Bey in Bosnia in the rule of Suleiman I. Its arguable if their name comes from "Delil" or "Deli" but they were called Deli ("Mad") by the ordinary people because of their frightening looks and courage. Their opponents particularly disliked them, considering them and their ancestors to be traitors of the Christian faith. Due to this the Delis tended to get beheaded or impaled if captured. In turn, they would have no qualms about doing the same to those unfortunate Christians they would capture if no prospect of bounty was likely. Delis were experts in sword using, javelin throwing and horseback riding; and it is said that each Deli had to face at least a hundred enemy soldiers in battles. Their most important duties were to distract the attention of the enemy and harass them. With their frightening looks, they also caused the enemy morale to go down, and caused havoc in enemy lines. Even tough the delis didn't have a uniform, they were easily identified from their unorthodox and frightening clothes, such as bear pelts, animal skins, feathers and even whole wings attached to their shields and some of them even strapped small knives to their bodies. They usually carried sabres, lances, maces and later pistols as well.

    NOKERS

    Literally meaning "Companion", the N÷kers were retainers of tribal leaders and noble warriors. Also known as Alps they were chosen from loyal and skilled warriors. They were the backbone of every tribal military entity. Financially aided by the ones they serve, the N÷kers were equipped relatively good compared to other tribesmen. They fight in classical tribal ways, riding fast horses and using composite bows, sabres and lances with high skill.

    CEBELU LIGHT CAVALRY

    The JebelŘ or CebelŘ were the light cavalries trained and commanded by timarli sipahis. Although they were mostly recruited from peasants, they were strictly trained and were experts of sword wielding and horseback riding. They usually didn't wear armor, but wore helmets and usually carried round shields. Their weapons consisted of classical Ottoman cavalry weapons: a sabre, a lance, a dagger, a composite bow and sometimes a mace. The Jebelu differed very little from the timariots who recruited them. Their equipment was somewhat lighter, but they fought alongside their respective timariots. Often they were prisoners of war or slaves and it was even more common for timariots to recruit their relatives and sons in order to ensure they would inherit their fief. Since the sultan was the owner of all land, including the timars, after the death of an obligator, the fief would return to the Sultan, to dispense as he saw fit, usually to grant it to another holder in exchange for military duties. By having their sons prove themselves as Jebelu warriors, the Jebelu ensured their offspring were first in line to receive their father’s timar fief. This ensured a further benefit – war was instrumental in Ottoman economy. New timars could only be secured through conquest and a way for young warriors to distinguish themselves was through warfare. The Ottoman state was a steamroller that crushed everything before it, but once it ran out of steam, it could not start rolling again.

    SIPHAI

    The majority of the Ottoman cavalry were provincial feudal obligators called Timarlu. A timariot (or timar holder; timarlu in Turkish) was an irregular cavalryman that served the Ottoman sultan and in return was granted a fief called a timar. The timariots had to assemble with the army when at war, and had to take care of the land entrusted to him in times of peace. When at war, the timariot had to bring his own equipment and in addition a number of armed retainers (jebelu).
    This way of recruitment was called as Timar System, which was similar to the Sui Chinese Fu and Seljuk Iqta Systems. The timarli sipahis can be considered as the equivalent of a Medieval European knight, and jebelŘs as their men-at-arms.
    Timarli sipahis never got monthly payments like the Kapikulu troops had; and instead, they supplied themselves with their incomes from their timar lands. If a timarli sipahi committed a crime, his punishment changed according to the level of that crime. Taking the timar land from it's owner was the worst punishment and was usually implied on the ones who didn't join the campaigns without any reason.
    When on campaign, the timariots were organized into regiments called alays that were commanded by alay beys (or beg). Larger units were the sanjak (or sanšak) regiments or livas (standard, banner), commanded by sanjak beys. At the top were the province governors, the beylerbeys. A province in the 16th century could muster some thousand timariots, according to the size of the province. In 1525 the total number of timar holders were 37 818, according to the tax rolls. The number of armed retainers was estimated to 50 000. Of course, these great numbers were spread out all over the empire, and could not possibly serve in one campaign at a time.
    Given their high numbers, any kind of uniformity was impossible, and timariots covered a wide range of roles, form light cavalry to heavy. Most however, were medium cavalry, well protected but not at the expense of agility, and with a wealth of experience from near constant warfare. This made them versatile and a dangerous adversary indeed.

    SILHADAR BODYGUARD

    The Sultan's Bodyguard was known as the Silahdar Corps or "Sari Bayrak" (meaning Yellow Banner). The Silahdar Corps were the oldest of the Kapikulu cavalry. During campaigns they used to collect the background service units like mŘsellems and y÷rŘks. In battles, they were positioned on the left side of the sultan and were ordered to protect the Imperial tent of the sultan. The personal bodyguards who always followed the sultan wherever he went were selected from the Silahdars. The Silahdar Corps were divided into 250 b÷lŘks; and their numbers were 2.200 in the 16th century. Just like the other Kapikulu troops, their numbers rose thereafter: 5.000 in the late-16th century and 7.500 in the early-17th century.

    well, it happens when you have slow internet, cause images are large and huge (about 200kb each), so browser stops loading them. i'll try changing image host site, but you can try by clearing all cookies, history data, and when you load it, try leave it only open, not to distract interet to load something else.

    and give rep+ to matko and il_duce, cause they were part of making units

    well, ottomans have a lot of units. kapikulu corps had a lot more than this unit roster, but we had to cut some units off. anyways, sipahi lancers will be included, but they look same as the timarli sipahi. so maybe voynik cavalry, but ottomans have already enough units

    just what i wanted to ask. so sipahi lancers are actually in. can you please write that in preview.

    and turkmen ug1 ?
    do you have it? i must have it on one of earlier backups CD's if you need it.

    PS
    there is really no need for voynik cavalry there are already many melee cavalry for Ottomans.
