On Day Eleven of the Swordvent Calendar we are still staying within the realms of Indo-Persia and today looking at the weapons of the Afghan trooper. These ferocious and disciplined tribesmen were one of the only colonial powers to consistently resist British occupation and when it happened it was clear to all involved that this was a will that could not easily be imposed.

The weapon of the Afghan soldiers were the fearsome pulwar, khyber knife and their famous muskets that they used to deadly effect against invading forces and when that wasn't happening, against eachother.
