    We cant know for sure but if you look at training, tactics, weapons discipline, the Roman Army, at it's prime(s) ( Scipio, Ceasar, Auralius0 would have destroyed the Mongals.

    Attila caught them at a time when they were a shadow of their former selves.

    Hannibal was a great General, but Scipio got his number at Zama, like Wellington had napoleon's at Waterloo.
    The way his ranks opend up, like 2 swinging doors, letting the elephant charge go by (like Jujutsu), reforemd and along with the attacking calvary at the flanks, crushing Hannibals army (making the Carthaginians basically kill each other) was masterfull.
