Which Nation Will Win in a Possible Battle of the Vikings and Mongols?

The meeting of the Vikings, who have peaked forces between the 8th and 11th centuries, and the Mongols, who stormed storms in the 13th century Central Asia, is a bit difficult, but still a fun, historical question.
Military equipment and attack power
Mongolians, regardless of the rifle, take the Mongols until the invention of the rifle. an army can progress as fast as its slowest component. this is the infantry for all armies that do not come from central asia steppes, including vikings. The Mongolian army consists of 100% archer cavalry.

these were born on horseback, running the enemies of killing enemies in war to marry women in their tribes, and therefore, the main origin of the amazon legend, firing with their bows that they gave 10-15 years of construction (which is longer than any firearm until the last century), 10 Returning from the brink of conquering Europe with several thousand horsemen, which had adopted the army order much earlier than Europe, occupied a large area to deal with the haremem┼čahs on the one hand, and the hungarian on the one hand, and the subutay and pocket took it to the expedition mission " The machines of death, which the grandfather of the first world war army could not possibly cope with, who continues to fight by fighting with their horses for a few days and drinking the blood of their horses, continuing the war, and who are the grandparents of every 10 people living today.

moreover, unlike Europeans, Genghis Khan does not give noble premiums to nobility. because all the generals are really great generals there. scientists, engineers etc. where he conquered. he does not kill and adds to his army. In this way, these equestrian barbarians can build catapults that ramp up the settled world cities with walls.

I love vikings more culturally. because they have a mythology (read arrow-odd, very beautiful). The Mongols, on the other hand, are the culture military tactics that they left us because they are half-shaman / half-irreligious and a bard, dengbej, a storyteller, 100% of them are not even farmers.

but no one should come and tell me, "x takes the mongols." I'm not so sure that even the Mongols can get the Mongols.
Geographical possibilities
both states feared their enemies in their own times and triumphed over victory. however, in order to tell who will win when these two armies face, it is necessary to evaluate the conditions they meet.

The greatest strength of the vikings was that they had fast small galleys against their other opponents' bulky ships. In this way, they had very advanced naval forces. in contrast, the Mongols never had boats or ships. they used ships only in Japan and Korea. those ships were the ships they rented from the Chinese. They were used to upload Mongolian horsemen soldiers. their captains and crew were all Chinese.

Another feature of vikings was that they could use forests well. The cities of Scandinavia, Germany, England, France, which they occupied, were founded in dense forests. The viking army had the ability to camouflage until it came to the city gate. In this way, the raids suddenly developed, the city was caught in the bed of attack. While the military units of the cities where they used to hit and run tactics were chasing the viking army withdrawn in the forest. Withdrawing from right to left, the viking army retreats tactics to disrupt the enemy's integrity and would be extremely successful.

There was no infantry unit in the Mongolian army. So all the soldiers were horsemen. Since it was not possible to ride a horse in the forest (including archers), the Mongolian army would fight on wide plains. Since the geography they were in was already steppe, they could easily run a horse in miles without a single tree. the army derives its strength from the maneuverability of equestrian soldiers. The tactic based on squeezing the enemy army in the navel and hitting the center with archers did not fail in a single battle by making fast raids on the wings of infantry units that should remain in regular formation.

these two states did not win these wars because of their weaknesses or other coincidences. The biggest reason behind their success was that they chose the areas they would fight and forced the enemy to do so. In the martial art book of sun-tzu, choosing the area to fight is the most important rule of winning the war.

that is, these two states could never face each other. neither the vikings were stupid enough to face the Mongolian horsemen on the steppe plains, nor the mongols enough to meet the vikings at the sea or in the woods ...
Well, have these two nations, whose dates are not so far apart, ever faced?
Mongols met with the grandchildren of the vikings.

In the 9th century, Swedish vikings established the kievan russian state on the trade routes, covering today a part of ukraine, belarus, moldova and russia. The Russian name already means "rower" in Swedish. The region they came from has been given the same name (see roslagen). Some of them came to Istanbul and had close protection of the Byzantine emperor (see 900 years of viking in Hagia Sophia).

Genghis Khan sent an envoy to establish trade relations with Kievan in the period when the world decided to jump to midwife (early 1200s). but the Scandinavians, who were not as civilized as they were at the time, had their heads cut off. this answer is a declaration of war according to the Mongolian law. cengiz has applied the same thing he did to the harezm┼čah state, who had previously done the same move, and sent subutay (one of the most dignified commanders in history, who has gone hundreds of wars from china to hungary) to destroy the russian state.

The invasion begins with the battle of the Kalka River. Opposite the Mongolians there is a coalition formed by Kievan Rus, the Galician Principality, various Russian presidents and Kipchaks. Although this coalition was 4 times the Mongolian army, almost all of it was destroyed. After the war, the Russian princes, who had Kiev knez, fell victim to a terrible death. all of them are connected and placed under a wooden platform. Mongolian generals ate, drank and danced on this platform:
After the war, Mongolian armies with the latest technological equipment advanced to Hungary and destroyed whatever existed - Kiev, Moscow, Ryazan, Eastern Europe, Balkans, etc. The number of people they killed led to an obvious reduction in the world population. plowed fields turned into forests and global cooling took place.

The effect of the event is so great that the norwegian king haakon iv (viking grandson), one of the most powerful kings of the time, was not able to leave Norway for fear, although he was offered the throne, but he refused the offer.
