Two rare and important Ottoman tombak sections of armour, including a breast plate (krug) and a shield (kalkan), further testify to the continued connections between Europe and the Ottoman Empire. Both were most likely to have been captured as booty as the Ottomans advanced into Europe, reaching as far as Vienna.
