Actually the moguls lost twice to japan.

Both times they failed to land in force against the Sameri.

Technically not, since both times weather destroyed their fleet before they made land-fall in any force.  Hence the Japanese myth of the 'kamikasi' or 'Divine Wind'.

So they never actually 'lost' as the battles didn't really begin.  There were a few small scale engagements (recorded in the Japanese chronicles and interesting for the Mongol's use of 'grenades') but i don't think these can count as a battle or a defeat.

And of course its actually entirely possible that the Mongols did lose battles, but those losses are not recorded.

Irrespective, i still content they are the greatest military force in history.
