The Persian Bow and Arrow was a composite bow used extensively by the Persian army. It was the Long-Range weapon of the Persian Immortal.

Uses

The bow was one of the most important weapons in the Persian arsenal. Although the light arrows were ill-suited for piercing armor or shields, the sheer number of arrows fired often overwhelmed opposing armies. Persian archers wore their quivers slung over their hips to allow for a faster rate of fire. Like the Egyptian bow, a Persian bow was designed to be simple to make and mass produce; relying on quantity over quality. This was because high rate of fire and numbers were more relevant in volleys.

Persian archery was a mandatory skill for the Immortals.

Test

The maximum range of the bow was about 175 yd, although the precision faltered and missed the target entirely.

The bow was able to score about half the hits on the 50 yd target and scored a hit at the 100 yd target.
