Hwacha Army

Historical Description[]

The hwacha was developed in the 15th century during the Joseon Dynasty by a team of Korean scientists. The handcart-like design, light-weight arrow ammunition, and easily-disassembled frame made the hwacha much more maneuverable than other cannons of the time. King Munjong communissioned a hwacha with an increased firing capacity of up to 200 projectiles, making it even deadlier. The new 'Munjong Hwacha' quickly spread across the nation and was used to great effect for hundreds of years after its invention. In 1593, a mere 3,400 Korean soldiers and 40 hwachas successfully fended off nine assaults from a much larger Japanese army at the Siege of Haengju.
