This list covers the Khmer and Cham from the invasion of Champa by a Sui Chinese expedition in 605 until the Khmer empire's destruction
by the Thais. It is based on Khmer reliefs from Angkor, Bayon and Banteay Chmar, dated 1113 - 1218 AD, and on foreign emissaries'
reports. The Charn used virtually identical troop-types, but seem to have relied more on heavy spearmen and initially less on cavalry and
archers than the Khmer. Khmer elephants are depicted with a driver, armed with spear and shield, and a single archer or sometimes
spearman. Those ridden by generals (identified by being shown enlarged) are accompanied by one or more parasol carriers on foot. Neither
these nor elephants being shown in the background of infantry combats justify (S) status, Cham elephants are all crewed by a driver, a
javelin-thrower, and a parasol bearer at the rear. Chariots, with only one fighting crewman, are shown only in scenes believed to depict
Indian mythology, although of a distinctively Khmer type. A Chinese ambassador notes guards on horseback and in chariots in 1295. The
ph'kak is an axe-like weapon resembling a hockey stick with an axe blade at right angles to its end. Maiden guard are depicted in one relief
armed with ph'kak and mounted on horses apparently disguised as dragons. Doubt has been expressed whether these are over-interpretations
of a damaged relief, but such equipment is only an exaggeration of the normal cavalry tack, which includes a possibly leather rump guard
over a tail plaited to a point, a "dragon horn" (of stiffened horse hair?) on the forehead and sometimes face and chest protection, though not
enough for Cv (S) status. Spearmen carry either a long or small round shield. Khmer and Cham in (possibly armoured) jackets and with long
shields are graded as (S), those with round shields as (O). Those without jackets are considered to be Irr Ax (O) regardless of shield type.
The Bw (O) represent archers shown behind a wall of pavises, but most appear to be skirmishers. Bottles of self-igniting "fierce fire oil"
were sent by the King of Champa as a tribute gift (and hint?) to a Chinese emperor in 958. The artillery. was Chinese-type "double
crossbows" man-handled on wheels or mounted (or possibly only transported) on elephants. It was probably acquired from the Cham, who
learned its use with that of crossbow cavalry from the Sung Chinese. Thai allies have been identified at Angkor. Their only difference from
the Khmer except in dress is the long machete-like sword carried by the infantry. The Thais were as yet rather barbarous. Minima marked *
apply only if any Thais are used.
