archers and crossbowmen
heavy cavalry

A pavise was too heavy to be used in direct combat. It was pri­mar­i­ly used as a shelter by archers and cross­bow­men, par­tic­u­lar­ly during sieges. It was often deployed in the ground with a spike attached to the bottom. The name "pavise" comes from the city of Pavia in Italy.
