During the Romance of the Three(3) Kingdoms period the Catapult aka Thunderbolt Cart was used as one of the siege weapon to attack enemy castles. Mobility in the battle field is one of the most important factor. Engaging enemies spotting a catapult from the opposite forces will use fire arrows to attack and first bring down the catapult. As this siege war/battle weapon will definitely bring down morale of soldiers who are being constantly bombarded by the catapults. Therefore, many forces like Cao Cao, Liu Bei and Wu forces had constructed mobile catapults instead of the traditional helm in or stationary catapults. This will sacrifice power with mobility.
Another powerful siege weapon is the Bolt Crossbow, this is a powerful but none accurate siege weapon against soldiers and against high walls by launching fire bolts at the walls’ defences. This Bolt Crossbow was used in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms era to lower the enemy soldiers’ morale and fighting spirits. Launching continuous fire bolts will cause panic and disorganize the enemy soldiers. Especially useful siege weapon against a huge army or battalion of soldiers. Generals of the Three(3) Kingdoms period like to use this during the launch of an attack.
