The Persian Immortals were able to dominate much of the Middle East due to their superior armor, but the hot climate made them focus on light armor, as heavy armor was too expensive in a region with few raw materials and the weight of armor would fatigue soldiers in the heat. Also the Persians preferred superior mobility for the open plains, deserts and Savannahs of the Middle East to better surround their opponents. This gave the Immortals a disadvantage against greek hoplites, especially the Spartans. Greeks had a cooler climate and better access to bronze, allowing them heavier armor metallurgy. Because of this, greek hoplites could overpower Immortals if the Persians were unable to outmaneuver the hoplites with their chariots and lighter infantry. Since Greece has a mountainous terrain and a long coastline, Greeks could easily fortify their positions in several of their famous battles like Marathon and Thermopylae.
