Anyway, when Shu surrendered, it had 102,000 armed men. I don't know how much men they lost against the invasion, but it seems like Jiang Wei was outnumbered...?

I'm not sure they placed a heavy guard in the south, but they definitely had a bunch of people in the Baidi area. The 102k is also the post casualties figure as well, so one would have to factor in the number of casualties in that last battle. And the number of defectors.
