I have to agree with you on this one. I made a mistake painting the horse too big.

so basically, the Mongols were an "extension" of the Assyrian empire?

frm what I read, the Mongols used EVERYTHING the Assyrian empire used, from the pointed helmets, right down to the psychological warfare tactics.

I never said they were related you dingdong, I'm basically saying the Mongols copied their Tactics.......

mongols were not a nomadic people similar to the assyrians, but they were not in anyway related to them, they were very distant in both time and location.

yes, my theory is that they learned these tactics from the Persian people who learned it from the Assyrians.

because upon reading both Mongol and Assyrian tactics of warfare, they have EXTREMELY similar tactics. The difference is that the Mongols added their own flavours into the mix.

The Mongols had no contact with the Persian people in large amounts, maybe a few of the far western steppe tribes, but the Mongols, if they took on any tactics, learned them from the Chinese

it still could be possible, considering that the Wheel was invented by the ancient Mesopotamians and it spread everywhere to the point where every civilization had basic wheels.
