It had a maximum range of 500 meters, and the Mongols were able to target individual soldiers up to 200 meters away. Mongol archers used a wide variety of arrows (such as armor-piercing arrows, wide tipped assault arrows, [http://deadliestwarrior.wikia.com/wiki/Huo_Chien fire arrows]), depending on the target and distance, and would time their shot for when all four of the horse's feet were off the ground, thus enabling a steady, well-aimed shot. The Mongol bow could be fired from a kneeling position during dismounted combat thanks to it's compact size, this offered better control and accuracy. One of the most noticeable faults with the Mongol Bow was that it was designed for the cold and dry climate of Central Asia. Genghis Khan's invasion of the Ghurid Empire led to his archers being less effective; the bows and their strings becoming flimsy from the damp jungle biome.
