Does anyone know what role if any Mamluks played in the Ottoman army in the 17th century? I would like to include them in my army, but I dont know if I should treat them as beslis, gonullu or Sipahi?

They play very minor role, due to long distance from Egypt to European theatre of war they rarely show up there (although they were at Vienna in 1683). They should be treated as sipahi.
