Janissaries, 'Yeni ceri', meaning new soldier in Greek are recruited by a levy of Christian boys within the empire, and trained from a young age. As an elite corps they have the best armour and equipment, and are the first in the Turkish army to use the newly invented musket. This heavy gun has a respectable range and can penetrate almost any armour, and is almost guaranteed to inflict a wound that kills or maims.
