Technology was the same for both. Horses, camels, sowrds, bow arrow etc. Now fast forward to 2021, technology has to be at par & then coming quantity and bravery.

generally tribal armies are less armored than professional militaries. The strength of the Rashidun empire came from their effective use of light cavalry to out maneuver their enemy.

Rashidun archer he has his faced armored so he can't get stabbed in the face except the eyes. If you listen to their recordings they always speak about the day of the lost eyes. Whenever they suffer casualities because their faces and whole body was covered

The day of lost eyes was before the rashiduns gained any horse archers. horse archery was not a thing that the arabs practiced, they had to learn it from persians and byzantines who joined their army
Who's armor is this?

Ayyubid perhaps.

This can't be ayyubid. Ayubid empire collapsed before full plate armor was developed which is what that knight was clearly wearing. Looks Ottoman perhaps.
The Mughal armor


The top one is fantasy. The shoulder pad is too high. If you try to raise your arms you will crush your head. Also, I have never seen Mughal armor like that. Mughals generally never wore full-plate armor, they preferred plate-mail which is plate linked together with chainmail. here is a sindhi example
