How effective were the weapons and how effective were their purpose?

The best weapon, in my opinion, that the Egyptians had was the chariot. The chariot was pull by two or more speedy horses. During battle someone would drive the chariot, (which took a lot of nerve) while an archer would shoot arrows at the enemy. It allowed a battalion of troops to make a quick but yet effective attack. This must have been devastating to the enemy. Another effective weapon during the wars were the battling ram. It was designed to knock down locked doors so that other soldiers could enter enemy fortresses. It had a roof to protect the soldiers from enemy arrows from shooting them.
