Army Composition: 1 x (Gen) 3Cv, 8 x 3Cv, 1 x 2Lh or 3Cv, 2 x 5Wb or 7Hd or 2Lh (17 elements)
Historical Enemies: Bagratid Armenian, Dynastic Bedouin, Buyid or other Dailami Dynasties and Georgian.
Historical brief notes: Kurdish dynasties managed to gain power after the collapse of their Abbasid Arabs masters. Some Kurdish dynasties/tribes controlled their own native mountain regions, such as the Hasanuyid chiefs of the Barzikani Kurd's of Kirmanshah or the Annazid chiefs of the Shadhinjani Kurd's of Hulwan.
In Azerbaijan, a Kurdish chief, Daysam disputed control of land with the Musafirids, but was defeated when his Dailami troops were defected by their Musafirid compatriots. Kurdish power in Azerbaijan was restored by the Rawaddids (circa 950-1071). The Marwanids ruled what is now Iraqi Kurdistan, supplementing their tribal forces with Georgian Ghulams and sometimes cooperating with local town militias. The Kurdish and Marwanids dynasties were finally eliminated (completely remove or get rid of) by the Seljuk Turks.
Kurdish cavalry were armed with lance, sword and shield and in some cases carried bows. A nasty looking cavalry force indeed with lots of "punching" attacks, an ideal DBA Cavalry Army to do battle against the DBA Georgians and Bagratid Armenian's!....umm.. I strongly recommend to avoid if possible, playing against Bowmen (Bw) armed armies! :oP
