http://www.warfare.altervista.org/13/Moko_Shurai_Ekotoba_by_Takezaki_Suenaga.htm - Mongol troops in the Moko Shurai Ekotoba (Mongol Invasion Scroll) by Takezaki Suenaga, 1293
Mongol warriors depicted on a Japanese emakimono. The Moko Shurai Ekotoba was created by Takezaki Suenaga to press his claims for reward after the war against the Mongols.
The 3 Mongol soldiers, the bursting shell, & the tree, were latter additions to the 13th century scroll.
Other illustrations of North Chinese and Manchurian troops also show helmets with feathers. The Song Chinese had wings on their helmets.
The helmet and clothes are characteristic of Mongols, Khitan & Turks, so the 3 figures may be dismounted cavalry.
Ceramic shells called Zhen tian lei (thunder crash bombs) in Chinese, or tetsuhau in Japanese, were discovered on the sea bottom. Tests indicated that they had held gunpowder.
