Who would win in medieval style warfare?

This isn't about actual events or events that could ever happen.

This is about a comparison of comparable warfare technology.

If my forces were issued the following weapons and we were a European force...

And we got into a war in medieval Europe..

Barnett TS370 Tactical Crossbow

PSE Carbon Air Stealth 35 EC Compound Bow

PSE Seqouia Longbow

PSE Achieve Competition Recurve Bow

Japanese Katana Sword:

Sharpening: Razor Sharp

Sword color: Stainless Steel

Blade Size: Katana

Blade Material: Kobuse Blade

Blood Groove: No Groove

Handle Wrap: Black Leather

Rayskin: Black

Sheath: Black Gloss

Sheath Cord: Black

Handle Guard: Black Crane

Blade Collar: Black

Blade Engraving?: Yes

Engraving: United Republic Army Katana Sword

SOG Seal Pup Elite Knife

SOG Battle axe

SOG Machete

ColdSteel Steel Samburu Spears with the Clovis shaped points and sheaths.

PSE Arrows.

Steel, cutting blade broadheads on the arrows.

The advantages we have are accuracy...

Feet Per second velocity.

Optics.

And Metal quality..

And quality of scientific engineering..

And materials.

And modern martial Arts training, regardless of quality as compared to an Asian samurai.

Advantages that the European enemy has.

Medieval european simple minded, evil ideology and mood.

European disadvantages.

Weapons training only, no martial Arts training...

Plain Queensbury boxing is still a few centuries away.

    Martial arts training is weapons training.

    They had more then boxing in the middle ages of europe. They had a number of empty handed styles.

    Do you even know what queensbury rules are?

    What is more important then everything you listed, is tacticts.

    Who would win is based on the tactics the commander, type of terrean etc etc etc.

    Try reading sun tsu, you might just begin to understand

    No shields, no armour, no horses?

    Your group would be cut to pieces.

    Katana IS NOT A EUROPEAN MEDIEVAL WEAPON! And you stated "If my forces were issued the following weapons and we were a European force...And we got into a war in medieval Europe.."

    Another is "And modern martial Arts training, regardless of quality as compared to an Asian samurai.

    Advantages that the European enemy has. Medieval european simple minded, evil ideology and mood.".. Which is completely ignorant and wrong abt any medieval military leader. They were way more advanced and vicious that you could imagine.

    Another is some of those weapons you mention are wrong timeline or not even around.

    Also another is stainless steel is NOT a color.

    AND "Weapons training only, no martial Arts training...

    Plain Queensbury boxing is still a few centuries away"

    WTF you do realize they had hand to hand for thousands of years long before your fantasy imagination.

    Weapons and hand to hand were taught to just abt every regular military there was. IF not it was things taught on the fly or life or death..

    You are very narrow minded and not to intelligent or knowledgeable at all in this area. You need to do some serious . And the crossbow was not really used until very late in your timeline.

    Also some of your use of "technology" is lop sided. Which again is completely wrong.

    A better timeline scenario would be around the time Ghengis Kahn tries to invade europe.

    You need to study your history better. And its military/technology history not just timeline.

    I don't see any mention of your armor.  The weapons you've chosen probably won't be as effective as you think against quality medieval armor, a katana isn't going to slice through plate.  Your ranged weapons will be more accurate within their effective range, but an English longbow is going to have a much greater range.  Quality of materials isn't going to matter as much as you think either, forged weapons and armor in the medieval time period weren't garbage.

    The problem is you're trying to pit hunting implements against weapons of war.
