Hussars were lightly equipped horsemen who wore a close-meshed mail shirt and plate armour: the breast and backplate of this armour consisted of many iron rings bound together with leather straps and rivets so that the horseman remained agile.
Since the 16th century, Hussars also existed in the Imperial Army; the Styrian Estates had been fitting them out since approx. 1570.
