a medieval Korean weapon that launched a barrage of rockets or arrows at enemies using gunpowder
Hwacha or Hwach'a was a multiple rocket launcher used in Korea during the Joseon Dynasty. It had the ability to fire up to 200 Singijeon, a type of fire arrow rocket, at one time. The hwacha consisted of a two-wheeled cart carrying a board filled with holes into which the singijeon were inserted. Some East Asian historians believe this technological breakthrough, alongside the turtle ship in the mid-16th century, had a distinctive effect during the Imjin War. Today, hwacha appear in Korean museums, national parks, and popular culture.
