The English fleet would have been in no condition to face the full powered Spanish Armada for months. Little did she know that King Philip also thought that his army of ships were not capable of fighting against her navy and that was the reason for his stop on the first attempt. As time passed and Queen Elizabeth started to expand her navy, she believed that battle should be fought on home ground, the English Channel. The Spaniards dominated the Indians, due to several reasons. While the Spaniards will say they dominated the Indians because of their superior armament, and war tactics. A bow and arrow was no match for a gun, stones were no match for cannons, and finally horses were faster than humans which was a huge advantage for the Spaniards.

The Defeat of Spanish Armada and the Factors and Events that Lead to It
It was arguably Queen Elizabeth 's finest hour. For years she had been hailed as the English Deborah, the saviour of the English people, and now it seemed that this is what she had really become. She was now Bellona, the goddess of war, and in triumph she had led her people to glory, defeating the greatest power in. The Spanish armada was the attempted Spanish invasion of England. This invasion was set into action to stop the heresy, king Philip II of Spain had claimed Elizabeth I of doing as she had accepted the protestant form of Christianity and implemented it throughout England.
This flotilla was sent to retaliate against England for supporting the piracy and terrorizing of Spanish ships in the Atlantic, and for championing the Netherlands in their revolt against Spain. The Armada was eventually defeated, resulting in a short-term defeat for Spain, but ultimately, a long-term triumph in the decade after. The two forces decided to combine fleets thinking it was too overwhelming for the British to handle. This was the key to capture the Queen and ultimately conquer England entirely.
