CAMEL CAVALRY~MAN on CAMEL with MOUNTED GUN~INDIA~c1915



The Zamburak is an Indian light cavalry unit with a mounted gun that inflicts great damage on heavy cavalry. A zamburak is a small weapon carried on and fired from the back of a camel. The name comes from the Arabic "zambur," meaning hornet. Before gunpowder, early versions of the camel-mounted gun featured a bolt-firing crossbow that produced a buzzing twang at discharge, which gave the weapon its name.
