  1. Gromoboy, Do you have any clue about how would the Moscow Nobles and the local gentry be dressed? Same as Dragoons?

    1. I know images of feudal levy in the sec. half of XVII c., but don't know any of Russian dragoons

      I assume, that Moscow nobls could have armour. While local gentry didn't use any armour. In fact they were a light cavalry armed with a sabre, pistoles & carbine. The same as the most of szhlachta in the Times of Potop
