Indian corsairs, dating from the 9th or 10th century, that chased Arab shipping bound for India and China. They were described by one observer as warships with oars, fifty rowers, and fifty men-at-arms and wooden roofs to protect against arrows and stones. Unsuited for war maneuvers, they were intended to provide for hand-to-hand battles for crew upon boarding.
