Hwacha say?

Here, the Mythbusters recreate an ancient Korean weapon called the Hwacha using around 200 Estes D12-0s. The fire and smoke was impressive but still doesn't challenge the largest sport rocketry mass launches (which use modrocs pointed in the safe direction - UP!). They did demonstrate that such a weapon could have been quite effective back in the 1400's.
