Based on my memories from my visit to the Vladisalv of Varna Museum, the haqebuts were attributed to Bohemians in the Polish Army, who according to the chronicle remained at the battlefield after the rest of the Christian forces were routed and defended a wagenburg successfully against repeated sipahi attacks for a while, until they were eventually overwhelmed.

I believe the kettle helmet and some of the swords were actual finds from the site of the battle, which is exactly where the museum and the little park around it currently stand.
