Default Ferdowsi on Baloch 935 1025 CE

Hakīm Abul-Qāsim Ferdowsī Tūsī (Persian: حکیم ابوالقاسم فردوسی توسی‎, most commonly known as Ferdowsi (فردوسی) ; also spelled as Firdausi or Firdusi; 935 1025 CE), was a highly revered Persian poet. He is the author of the Shahnameh, the national epic of Iran and the Persian-speaking world.

the baloch troops who faught for Astyages or Kai Khusrau in (585-550) BC were wearing helmets with cocks comb crest,they got the nickname of the baloch.while listing the warriors of Kai Khusrau,Firdousi mentioned the baloch under the comand of general Ashkash As follows :

next after gustaham came shrewd askash
endowed with prudent heart and ready brain,his
his troop was from the wanderers of the koch and
baloch wearing exalted cocks comb crests very rams
to fight,no one had seen their backs in the battle or
one of their fingers bare of armour,their banner was a
pard with claws projecting,akash felicitated Kai
khusrau at large upon the happy turn of fortune

Ferdowsi described the baloch as part of the army of cambyses (siahwash),son of kai kaouse of the Achaemenid Dynasty
