I'm not sure that game is so unbalanced.
But I made another preset which looks the best. It is really full Shogi army with two Golds.

Two Golds are same as two knights.
Two lances are same as two elephants.
Two honorable horses are same as one ferz.
Two Silvers are same as one rook.

So Percian army have advantage - one rook. Also shatranjian pawns are stronger, in my opinion. But Shogi army have big advantage in large promotion zone, and promotes to piece which is stronger than ferz.
