General Turtle, you have more pictures of the Hwacha?  I'm still in need of more details.

Yes it is

Chinese, of course. As a unit being mentioned in 1401 in China and in 1451 in Korea - everyone can see the difference.

Some details could vary, but the principle is the same. I think the range and effectiveness were very close to both types.

Best regards,

Alexey.

I think it'll be fun to slot in a whole barrage of fireworks, the kind that shoot up into the sky. Connect them all with one long fuse that'll light them one after the other and shoot them off! Ooooo.... I can't wait! Maybe get one built in time for next year Chinese new year! :lol:
