Here's the original text in old french.
Discours des terribles et espouvantables signes apparus sur la mer de Gennes
...d’autres avoient le corps comme corps humains, tout couverts d’escailles, mais la teste estoit en forme d’un dragon.
...others had a human-like body, covered with scales, but the head was dragon shaped.
Spacesuits and helmets described by people who never have seen spacesuits
I don't think so. If we were talking about 4 thousands years ago, yes, but we are talking of hundreds of years ago. Back then, they already had armors and helmet, they used them themselves. That gives me the impression that they knew the different between helmets, body armors (space suits) and the real thing. We are talking about people that already had fire power: cannons.
Also, it's my impression that the conflict was not new. Why would they attack those UFOs if it was the first time they saw them? They would have been in awe at such new and amazing things. If the story is true, they were just, probably, defending themselves from an ongoing battle with them. Maybe those UFOs came to abduct more people and they were just defending their community.
