    Mughals continued Indian trend of poorly arming most infantry. Quantity over quality..

    Battle Scene with Boats on the Ganges : [​IMG]

    This painting by the Mughal court artists Tulsi the Elder and Jagjivan from the Akbarnama (Book of Akbar) depicts Shuja’at Khan pursuing Asaf Khan on the River Ganges in north-east India. The image shows the two boats filled with gun bearing men confronting each other. Asaf Khan was vizier to the Mughal emperor Akbar (r.1556–1605). He was also a highly effective military leader but, for reasons that are obscure in the text of the Akbarnama, kept treasure that the Mughal forces had seized during a successful campaign in 1565. He tried to flee with his supporters across the Ganges, where Akbar’s forces, led by the general Shuja’at Khan, caught up with him. A fierce confrontation followed, depicted in this illustration, but Asaf Khan escaped. In 1567, he sent messengers to the court asking for forgiveness, which was granted.
