Ankara's historical controversies

I mentioned in my commentary for the Battle of Ankara a few historical controversies surrounding the battle. Altogether they include:
  1. which side was superior in numbers
  2. by how much was one side superior in numbers
  3. reasons for betrayal within the Ottoman ranks
  4. how tired the Ottomans actually were

Do you think the animation accurately answered these questions?

I will only add that Ottomans weren't betrayed by all.Serbian heavy cavalry (on image)defeated Mongol attack on left flank.They also penetrated the ring around Janissaries and Bayezid,but he refused to retreated.

That is Byzantine and Serbian version.I have one map,but it's in Cirilic.

I think that , what you are saying is true, except they did not penetrate any rings, tactically is unsound- the battle was lost if The Thunderbolt wanted to escape, he had all of the chances to do it early...
