Aquilonia makes good use of bows, similar to [[Shem]].  It is likely that the Shemite archer is every bit as good as a Bossonian, though it is possible that the Bossonians have superior bows, while Shemite archers may be more heavily protected.

Aquilonian Army List

"THE AQUILONIAN host was drawn up, long serried lines of pikemen and horsemen in gleaming steel, when a giant figure in black armor emerged from the royal pavilion, and as he swung up into the saddle of the black stallion held by four squires, a roar that shook the mountains went up from the host. They shook their blades and thundered forth their acclaim of their warrior king – knights in gold-chased armor, pikemen in mail coats and basinets, archers in their leather jerkins, with their longbows in their left hand." -The Hour of the Dragon
