Arab self shot n uUploader: Patrick 20 days ago Subscribe 2369
I didn't have a teacher, and no one in my family knew Arabic. European crossbows were phased out in the 16th century in favor of arquebuses and muskets while crossbows in China continued to see limited usage into the 19th century. For example in one batch of slips there are only two mentions of bows, but thirty mentions of crossbows. An assortment of other ancient European bolt throwers exist such as the ballistabut these were torsion engines and are not considered crossbows. Therefore if the arcuballista was not like the manuballista, it may have been a crossbow. Although Zhuge Liang is often credited with the invention of the repeating crossbow, this is actually due to a mistranslation confusing it with the multiple bolt crossbow.
