Polish Hussar - best heavy cavalry formation in XVI-XVII century in my opinion

Two sets of hussars armour, Polish, second half Helmets have a visor and a nose-iron; the breast plate is tied on the back by two leather straps. Leopard skins around the shoulders. The wings, made of eagle feathers, were fixed to the saddle.
