The Peasant levy made up the core of the Aztec army. These commoners had no access to extravagant armour, and usually wore simple quilted cotton armour.
The majority of these troops were armed with a bow.
These archers were sometimes accompanied by shield-bearers, who were trained to defend the archers and were experts at deflecting arrows with their shields.
Aztec young novice warriors or soldiers who had only captured one of the enemy, usually wore simple cotton quilted tlahuiztli body armour, and carried a simple maquahuitl.
