Posted by: Kastigier I'd love to see a Warrior on this. Ottomans are overlooked in my opinion. Thoughts?

There already is an Elite title on the Janissaries. How about a Warrior title on the sipahis?

Yeah the Sipahis would certainly make a great Warrior or Elite title. Myself and others have been suggesting it for ages, however, it's never been put to a vote : ( A Campaign title on the Siege of Vienna 1529 would be great too.

If the Janissaries have already been covered in elite then Osprey should do other more important Ottoman related stuff,like Mohacs and Plevna. America undefeated, I second your idea on a book on the 1787 war. the 1806 war should be considered too.

An Elite title on Ottoman cavalry would be excellent. Also the Seljuk to Ottoman Turks, from nomadic steppe sheepherders to pre civilisation. Another useful set would be a series of MAA on the Ottoman expansion into the Balkans and the enemies they encountered there. Scratchbuilder

Some of my greatest wishes seem to have suggested by others here. Mohacs would be really awesome. Additional suggestion I'd like to make is Ottomans' persian enemys, the Sapavids. During the 17th centuries, Ottomans fought against Persia. Ans Europeans, against each other in 30 years war and then, when the two clashed each other again, it seems that the balance of power had already shifted in favor of Europeans. Things may have been more complicated but it seems that relative backwardness of Sapavids or their different tactics seem to have provided one of the reasons for decline of military fortunes in European theater for the Ottomans.

I don't like the post I have made. It is the scholars who made me believe something like that. Sapavids must have been much much better!!!!!

As such I want to see more on Ottoman infantry, cavalry and artillery and their campaigns along with those of Sapavid and Mughul empires.
