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.
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.
Persian archery was a mandatory skill for the Immortals.
