In this modern plate by Dr Chris Flaherty:

the "Spahis" are based on:

and:

These are from Plates dated 1805 from an album labelled: Vorstellung der vorzuglichsten Gattungen des Türckischen Militairs und ihrer Officiere in The Vinkhuijzen collection of military uniforms, NYPL

Although two of these plates are copied from:
The Great Lord in ceremonial dress for the day of Beiram, after Jean-Baptiste Vanmour (Van Mour), 1671-1737 and Sadrazam, the Grand Vizier, in Ceremonial Dress and Turban, after Vanmour which date to circa 1699-1708, there is nothing to indicate that others date to anything other than 1805.

This uncropped version has a caption that indicates it is a Deli (scout), so not a sipahi.

For Ottoman Sipahis that are c. 1700 see:
Sipahi or Turkish Cavalryman after Jean-Baptiste Vanmour (Van Mour), 1699 to 1708

Hi samuraiantiqueworld,
Well spotted! It is the Hungarian Army. I have failed to edit that line when copying from the Ottoman Turks Fighting the Polish Army, Hamse (quintet) of the Ottoman Turkish poet and scholar 'Ata'ullah bin Yahyá 'Ata'i, copied and illustrated by Heyrullah Heyri Çavuszade in 1721AD.
I will fix it. Thanks.

Thanks, that is a great image, the large amount of firearms shows why armor lost its importance although you still see Ottomans with spears and bows, the severed heads are a nice touch!

I cleaned it up a bit.
