El Sadimmin were the standard army of the country of Calimshan.[1]

EtymologyEdit

The term sadimmin was plural, and meant "powerful swords".[1]

OrganizationEdit

The Sadimmin forces of a given city were under the control of one of the sultans.[1] As of 1370 DR, el Sadimmin had the following military ranks, from lowest to highest:[2]

Upon reaching the rank of balak or qayadin, a soldier in el Sadimmin was granted a mansion or villa on the syl-pasha's estate. This provided enhanced status for the officer but also meant that the syl-pasha could blackmail him more easily.[1]

GarrisonsEdit

The barracks for the soldiers of each sabban was known as a sadidah. A sadidah often had a minaret attached to it and was four stories tall or taller.[3] They tended to be simple and practical structures, holding 40 to 60 troops. Each garrison was controlled by at least four officers and contained armories as well. A sadidah armory was stocked about twice as well as that of a typical amlakkhan.[4]
