Why can't the Roman army defeat the Qin and Han armies? Next, Xiaobian will bring the historical truth. Let's have a look!
Ancient Rome is one of the earliest dynasties in the European continent. It is undeniable that after hundreds of years of war, ancient Rome became powerful. But the problem was that later Rome declined. In ancient Rome, there were many powerful ones, such as the great emperor, Constantine I, Gaius Octavian and so on.
It is undeniable that ancient Rome was invincible on the European continent at that time. In this period, the status of ancient Rome is very important. The ancient Roman period corresponds to the ancient period of China. Suppose, then, that ancient Rome met the princes of the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period?
In terms of military strength alone, ancient Rome was not an opponent of the spring and Autumn Warring States period. It was very difficult for ancient Rome to form hundreds of thousands of troops, such as the Qin state. It is worth mentioning that the individual combat ability of ancient Rome cannot be underestimated. This does not work at all in large-scale wars. In other ways, ancient Rome was not the rival of every vassal state.
Nowadays, people have assumed what will happen to the Qin army. In the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period, Qin was almost invincible. Comparatively speaking, the strength of Wei is not as good as that of Qin. What about the Wei soldiers, who were weaker than the Qin and Han armies, compared with the ancient Roman armies? This should be analyzed from the equipment of both sides.
From the perspective of Roman soldiers' individual equipment, Roman individual equipment is undoubtedly very good. First, the individual is equipped with two javelins, a short sword, an oval shield, helmet and breastplate. After throwing javelin, Roman soldiers will charge with round shield and short sword to win the close battle. From this point of view, it is totally different from the soldiers in the Central Plains.
There is no doubt that the Roman Legion is very well equipped in terms of individual soldiers, but in terms of Legion operation, the Roman Legion's operation mode is simple. In terms of fighting, the Roman Legion will distribute a square array of growth guns. Basically, but the Macedonian square also has weaknesses, that is, two wings.
By contrast, Wei Wuzu was not vegetarian. There must be some differences between Wei Wuzu and Qin sharp men. The historical books describe the soldiers of Wei as "the soldiers of Wei took them by degrees, with three kinds of armour, twelve stone crossbow, fifty negative arrows, and put them on the spear, with swords and crowns, and won three days of food, and then went to hundred Li in the middle of the day. In the middle of the test, the families were restored and the houses of soldiers in the Wei Dynasty were built. "
According to such records, Wei soldiers were better equipped than Roman soldiers. The two javelins of the Roman Legion were obviously not the opponents of the 50 bows and arrows of the Wei soldiers. This can be learned from historical records. A Roman soldier's dagger has no advantage in front of a long square. The Roman army was able to charge from within the range of the bows and arrows of the Wei soldiers regardless of the sacrifice. At the same time, the Roman army had to tear up the array of the Wei soldiers.
In this case, the Roman regiment had little chance of winning. In such a situation, the Roman army's dagger must break through the bow and arrow intercept, which needs to pay a lot of price. The Roman regiment would never take such a risk. Compared with the ancient Roman army, the ancient army in the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period did not like to use such weapons as short swords and spears, but liked such weapons as crossbows and bows and arrows.
It can be imagined that the dagger belongs to the close attack weapon, but the bow or crossbow belongs to the long-distance attack weapon. What's more, Wei Wuzu was the first professional army in ancient history. He once beat the state of Qin with 50000 people, but he had no temper. Under such circumstances, how could the Roman army be the opponent of the Wei soldiers?
Now it seems that the Macedonian array of Alexander the great is very powerful, but the Macedonian array of Alexander the great can't even defeat the ancient Roman army, let alone defeat the Wei soldiers or the Qin troops. The Macedonian square of Alexander the great could not defeat the Roman Legion. The equipment of the Roman Legion was obviously inferior to that of the Wei soldiers.
Thus, both Alexander the great and the Legion of ancient Rome could not defeat the army of the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period. Now it seems that the soldiers of the Roman Legion are good at fighting alone, so in the case of large-scale attack, the army of the Roman Legion will be much different. Compared with the Roman Legion, Wei Wuzu made a great achievement of "fighting 72, winning 64 in all, and understanding ()" for the rest.
