Lets say you're the head of an army to dispatch one of Dany's dragons with maybe 10 thousand Dothraki screamers. You can have either Aegon's or Cersei's forces. What would your plan be to defeat the dragon and the army.
Well, given that the dragon requires Daenerys to ride it, and that Dothraki armies are held by the personality and forcefulness of their leader, the ideal plan would be to simply assassinate Daenerys. No dragon rider, no khal riding the Horse that Mounts the World, she’s the archetype of a keystone army.
If that’s not an option, overextending the Dothraki and using archery with field defenses to stymie their cavalry to include trenches and palisades used in conjunction with the terrain. That will bleed the Dothraki until Daenerys’s punitive force at the head of Drogon is deployed, scatter the troops so she doesn’t have a target ala the Dornish insurgency effort against Aegon I, then follow her back to her camp and attack her there, at night, where she can’t use Drogon without burning her own troops and when the Dothraki aren’t mounted up, in formation, and ready to charge. If I’m lucky, attacking during a storm would also be of great value, as we saw with the Last Storm which grounded Meraxes and significantly depreciated its tactical value.
Thanks for the question, Anon.
