In Asia, European dominance was established using seaborn artillery to bombard coastal and river cities. There were very very few times when Europeans had a land army in Asia that could not be easily over run by the Chinese, Japanese, or Koreans.
The last Mughal emperor might disagree. The Duke of Wellington cut his teeth in Asia, fifty years before the Great Rebellion of 1857.
