Before recently, most people had never fathomed a rocket cat being used as a weapon. Sometime around 1530, artillery master Franz Helm, of Cologne, Germany, created this makeshift piece of siege warfare. He would kidnap cats from enemy armies and strap a bomb to them. They were then sent home to explode.
The Triple-Bow Arcuballista was one of the most powerful weapons used during the time. The Chinese took it upon themselves to improve the common ballista, so they added two more bows to the powerful weapon. With an effective range of 3,500 feet, the arcuballista was three times as powerful.
