War Wagon

War Wagon

The War Wagon was a medieval weapon inspired by the Korean Hwacha, which was first produced in 1407 by the order of King Sejong the Great during the early Joseon Dynasty.

War Wagons were also developed independently by Hussite troops in Renaissance Bohemia. Formed into a laager and armed with arquebuses, they were instrumental in staving off attacks by the Holy Roman Empire (See Tabor).
