Design to be used in mountainous regions, Light Cavalry for The Tibetan Military featured all fighting equipment needed to contact with the Chinese Enemy. The majority of their weapons and equipment was patterned after The Chinese. Light Breed horses (for speed), were lightly (or not armored at all). Lamellar Plate or Chain Mail was preferred. Matchlock, War Spear, Sword and Bow and Arrow completed the issue for these Warriors. They were very effective Units with regards to close quarters fighting in the dangerous Tibetan Mountains from the 18th to 19th Centuries.
