The standing army of the Inca was formed primarily by nobles, but the Sapa Inca could raise an army of able-bodied men from the general populace at will. Military discipline was strictly enforced when the troops were on the march and the army, although variously specialized, was extremely well trained. They wore cloth armor that breathed well, allowed for free movement, and dissipated the force of blows. Battles tended to open with a hail of projectile weaponry before the forces closed in melee combat. One such ranged weapon was the Huaraca, or sling, which was used to hurl stones with great speed and force over considerable distance. Slings were deadly in the field, their stones capable of shattering bones and causing severe internal bleeding upon impact; their ranged nature also made them an effective tool for attacking defenders while assailing fortifications
