    Basically everyone used bows, it only depends on how many, though yes, most Germanic tribes would have rather few archers.

    Regardless, they would still need to deal with javelins, which would...

    Usage of large shields imo.

    With a large shield, plated armor is not necessary, and mail armor is far superior when it comes to bodyheat enclosing, so it is by default a better option.
