Img.310 from Korea (#4)

Img.310 (#4): Here is a photo of the "prototype" for one of the most modern types of missile weapons today - that is, the so-called "Katyusha". It is on display in the royal palace "Deoksugung" in Seoul. The only thing about this prototype that may puzzle us a bit is that the "improved" version shown in this photo was built in Korea in 1448, while its inventor, a certain Choe Museon, lived several centuries earlier during the Goryeo Dynasty. So now it becomes clear where the Russians got the idea for their Katyusha, and what kind of weapon frightened the horses of the Polish hussars during the medieval wars against the Mongols.
