No, no! Don’t get me wrong, I was not suggesting they were merely up against unarmored rabble. Instead, yes, those polearms would have been the primary ant-armor tools they were using.

…I made the comment about sabres and curved swords as those are most often best suited to soft targets, whereas longswords, depending on the type, will often have a degree of anti-armor capacity, especially when in halfsword.
