Their style of warfare depended more on harassing with projectiles and deciding the battle with a cavalry charge in a weak spot, and less on infantry blocks pushing against each other.
Also persians actually had capable and well trained infantry, some said to be able to face roman legions. They were just not the main corps.
>Talabuga, who led the main army in Northern Hungary, was stopped by the heavy snow of the Carpathians. On the march up, his force was devastated by logistical factors, namely a shortage of food which caused the deaths of thousands of his soldiers, as attested to by the Galician-Volynian Chronicle and certain contemporary Polish sources,
So proud of being able to win against retards who can't plan good invasions anymore?
