The armor weighted between 40-55 pounds mostly, but they usually had swords or other weapons aswell, they also often used shields and clothes underneath and more, thats why it goes up to perhaps 70 pounds all together.

Since they did not go to every place under the sun or faced every kind of people under the sun they did not make strategies for every single one, and knights was not 1 single order, there were knights from multiple different countries with different amount of training and knowledge and once again, I've been talking about japanese warrior not just samurais.

And for a knight to spend long time in japan or any asian place their armor goes to shit from the climate, just having him there a day or so would not do much but long term it ammters.

"where humidity would make it useless really fast." and for a whole set of armor that would go to shit pretty quickly since it cannot be shielded properly if he's gonna be combat ready and it's hard to keep it cleaned up so it wont get destroyed.

Yes it's easier overall for the body but it's still taxing on the overall endurance instead of 1 single part of the body.
Went up and down how much knights were fighting depending on how rich the army was, the richer the more people could be equiped with plate armor so even smaller troup leaders could do it.
Otherwise knights nearly only fought when it was necessary for the higher commands themself to actually fight and risk their lives.

The knights were still not 1 single order and in strategy they were experienced in large clashes with armies, they had ofc 1vs1 combat training and experience but their main training was in leading the armies.
Unmatched technology? No just no, perhaps in some aspects but not unmatched overall, for example here with Japanese they had black powder, something Knights would have 0 clue about.
Dont got the expertise on it but saying that knights had harsher training then samurais sounds wrong, not saying it's the other way around but I'd expect it's somewhat on the same level.

I know they did, but often they could only use regular longbows cause the armor would become an obstaacle when using a longbow.

Are you saying that 2 equally trained men will run at the same speed while one is wearing 70 pound of equipment and the other is not, no they will not.
And yes they could do a lot of movements quite fast, not saying they were handicapped cause then it would not be viable, but still their movements were slowed down, ofc they were with a lot of extra weight on them, and the armor did hinder some movements aswell and it took a lot of stamina to use, you got tired way faster than you would without it, you'd also end up dead way faster than with it.

30-50 pounds compared to over 70 thats spread out over the whole body limiting every move, also knights usually moved around somewhat more and constantly than soldiers did. Never said soldiers walk around fucking naked fighting.

They are made for entirely different areas, in Japan the knight wuld be in disadvantage, in europee the samurai or japanese warrior would be in serious disadvantage.

But here's the thing m8y: neither the armor weighed 70 pounds (60 pounds on average, again, only 5 more than a kabuto) nor the knight would be in that much of a disadvantage in Japan.

Knights fought all over the old world. They fought in plains, forests, deserts, beaches, rivers, etc. They fought all over Europe and North of the African continent. They developed strategies for every enemy under the sun.

Samurais, due to their peninsular location, only ever fought against each other. Their strategies never took huge changes. They never learned what it was to fight against a cavalry of muslims with their fearsome sabres; they never learned what apocalyptic water battles were like, with thousands dead and whole rivers painted red; they never experienced enormous sieges that lasted entire decades.

If we're talking about strategy, again, the knights win. Steel is universal; there's a reason why it was used all over the world, even in Japan, where humidity would make it useless really fast.

Also, try carrying 50 pounds on your back only and 60 all over your body and you tell me which is more difficult. You need a strong back to carry 50 pounds on it. You only need subpar limbs to carry 5-10 pounds on them.

And Knights were medieval Tanks m8. Most fights were fought with regular soldiers wearing chainmail and a shitty helmet. Knights, due to their armor, only went there to either inspire fear or break enemy formations.

The Samurai was an elite unit for it's time and location, but again, the knight is just overall better. Better strategies, more battle experience, unmatched technology, harsher training. The only real thing the Samurais have over the Knights was their ranged experience, with a superior bow training since boys.
