Thousands of years ago, Chinese from China due to many years of wars in China and in surrounding regions both in land and sea(Naval sea battles). They need to invent multitudes of weapons of mass destruction to protect against invaders and also to win in attack/offensive battles. New long range balistic launch weapons like the giant cross bows, gun powers, rocket launchers using gun powers and also single warrior hand held rocket launcher which can devastate many enemy foot mount and/or horse/calvary mount soldiers with a single blast with such rocket launchers. Think of hundreds of rocket launcher soldiers firing and aiming their rocket launchers at enemies battalions. With thousands or rocket arrows flying into their paths. This will definitely lower enemies’ fighting spirits and morale as they see their own comrades fall in the battle fields. Below are various pictures showing how such ancient Chinese weapons look like (Romance of the Three Kingdoms battle related). During The Ming Dynasty, also known as The Empire of the Great Ming 明朝 which ruled China for 276 years (1368–1644), there was a sharp halt of all weaponaries, inventions and modernizations, this was due to the emperor’s edict to stop all such inventions. As there could be various findings and realization that with such modern and dangerous inventions such as gun powers related weaponaries/warfare, it will soon lead to greater destruction of mankind. And true enough, after the gun power weapons were release and used. Even more dangerous weapons were invented later causing destructions which could destroy the whole world and/or whole of mankind!
