What does AKINCI mean?
The term akıncı (in Turkish: assailant) designates the irregular light cavalry, which formed the scouts and outposts of the Ottoman army. They used guerrilla tactics and caused confusion and shock to the enemy (similar to Russian Cossacks).
They were created by the Ghazis, frontier people who joined the religious war against the Christians and later joined the permanent Ottoman army. They used to deploy in the front line and be the first to confront the enemy. They had a reputation of being brave and fierce. They did not have a definite pay, but subsisted on plundering and spoils.
The forces akıncı were led by a reduced group of families or clans.
The akıncıs wore colorful and visual clothing to impress and confuse their adversaries. They used to carry eagle wings on their backs, helmets with bull horns and leopard skin coats. Recently, a Turkish unmanned combat plane that started flying in 2019 has been named AKINCI.
