Hundreds of years ago, China had an early version of what would become the modern Mulitple Rocket Launch System and the Rocket Propelled Grenades (shoulder fired rocket).

Yeah the debates regarding firearms and such is a pretty hot one. :twisted:

It is pretty impressive looking weapon. Looks like it could fire off a lot of arrows at one time, though pretty inaccurate. A few of them in the recreation flew sideways....

I guess the other question I have is how long it takes to reload... :wink:

Still I'd hate to have anyone shoot anything like that at me.

If your shooting at 3000 men you don't worry about your aim. :D

Mostly true. In this video some of them went directly to the left or right. When they hit your own men inaccuracy begins to count.
