    Default The Conquests of Qing Dynasty Emperor Hong Taiji

    From 1636-1643, the Chinese Empire would reach the peak of its power because Emperor Hong Taiji, the founder of the Qing Dynasty, ordered the conquest of several countries and territories which include: Vietnam, Tibet, Mongolia, Manchuria, Korea, Taiwan, Hainan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Pangasinan.

    Just like the Japanese Empire, the Chinese Empire was already industrialized since ancient times because Chinese inventor Zhuge Liang introduced the world's 1st use of mass produced interchangeable parts for his invention, the crossbow, the 1st armor piercing projectile weapon, while in the 400s BCE, Chinese inventor Mr. Qin invents the repeating crossbow.

    The Chinese were also the 1st to use factories in the form of animal mills, watermills, and windmills, because they introduced the harness in 1000 BCE which was eventually used to enable animals to power machinery by making the animals walk around in circles while connected to the harness which was in turn connected to a power shaft, while Chinese inventor Du Shi invented the watermill in 30 CE, and the Chinese started using windmills during the 300s.

    The Chinese also introduced the 1st aircraft in the form of kites, which were invented by Chinese philosophers Mozi and Lu Ban in the 500s BCE, and Kongming lanterns, which were also invented by Zhuge Liang, while Chinese inventor Gao Yang invents the kite glider in 559.

    Because of continued industrialization and militarization, the Chinese Empire was ready to bear the full weight of its industrial might on the rest of the world by the 1600s.

    Emperor Hong Taiji sent a force of 120,000 soldiers to occupy Korea and force it to become a tributary state, that is, a state that pays tribute in the form of money and goods without receiving anything in return.

    In the case of the Taiwanese colonization, Taiwan was originally called Formosa when it had a Dutch naval base, but in the 1630s Emperor Hong Taiji sent an expeditionary fleet led by Admiral Koxinga to attack the Dutch naval base. The Chinese Navy, with its superior number of battleships, won the naval battle against the Dutch Navy, and Formosa was ceded to China as part of the terms of surrender, after which, Emperor Hong Taiji renames Formosa into Taiwan.

    The Emperor also sends Admiral Limahong's fleet, a total of 600 battleships, into the Philippine Archipelago to occupy Pangasinan. After defeating the Spanish Navy in a battle, Admiral Limahong successfully occupies Pangasinan and it becomes a colony of the Chinese Empire.

    By this time the Chinese Empire has one of the most powerful navies in the world because it is the country in which engineer Gao Xuan invented the animal driven paddle wheel in 1132 and engineer Qin Shifu invented the sail and animal-driven paddle wheel powered ironclad battleship in 1203, while the 1st battleships that were armed with howitzers were introduced by Zheng He in 1405. The Chinese Empire also possessed the following weapons:

    Fire Gourd
    Fire Lance
    Muzzle Loading Hand Cannon Gun
    Wick Fired Muzzle Loading Cannon
    Howitzer
    Mortar
    Breech Loading Swivel Cannon
    Wick Ignited Explosive Shell
    Wick Ignited Hand Grenade
    Smoke Bomb
    Stink Bomb
    Toxic Vapor Bomb
    Signal Flare
    Coil Wick Ignited Landmine
    Time Fused Water Mine
    Solid Rocket Fuel
    Fireworks
    Fireworks Rocket
    Multiple Rocket Launcher
    Portable Multiple Rocket Launcher
    Solid Shot Rocket
    Rocket-Bomb
    Multi-Stage Rocket
    Cannon Tower
    Rocket Tower
    Matchlock Pistol
    Matchlock Musket
    Matchlock Arquebus

    Ah, fair enough. I am not as well versed with Chinese history as I should be, but there's a lot of interesting things in there from whatever skimming I did.

    I am not so certain about that because you would have to prove that such a conspiracy to wipe out a part of history really did happen, because when historical records are made, the records officially made by the governments of countries are compared to the records made by independent observers from neighboring countries to determine the consistency of the reports that were made.

    Then there is also archealogical evidence which is usually in abundance and is easily compiled by researchers.

    The Chinese also introduced the 1st weapons of mass destruction:


    Fireships - are ships filled with burning oil that bursts into a large uncontrollable flame when the ship's wooden hull, which becomes brittle because of the fire burning it down, cracks open when it hits an enemy ship and spills the burning oil into the water. The fireship was invented in 208 by Huang Gai who used it against Cao Cao's fleet during the Battle of Red Cliffs.

    Below is an image of the fire ship:






    Fire Ox w/ Spears - is a ground based version of the fireship that uses an ox carrying a barrel of oil or pulling a cart filled with barrels of oil. The tail of the ox is set on fire and the ox is whipped so that it will rush towards the enemy. When the burning oil spills out of the barrels after crashing into the enemy, large uncontrollable fires spread. The fire ox also has spears harnessed to it so that it injures any enemy personnel that try to stop its advance.

    Below is an image of a fire ox w/ spears:






    Explosive Fire Ox - is a version of the fire ox that carries a barrel filled with gunpowder, or pulls a cart filled with barrels of gunpowder, instead of oil. A wick is ignited before the ox is sent to the enemy and when the fire from the wick reaches the gunpowder, the ox, or ox and cart, explodes.

    Below is an image of an explosive fire ox:






    Fragmentary Fire Ox - is a version of the explosive fire ox that has shrapnel mixed in with the explosives to increase its lethality to enemy personnel.

    Below is an image of a fragmentary fire ox:






    Toxic Vapor Bomb - are gas bombs consisting of gunpowder mixed with various poisons wrapped in hemp and moxa. When the bomb explodes, the fumes cause bleeding from the mouth and nose that originates from blood accumulating in the lungs because the fumes burn holes in the lung's tissues. Because the blood accumulating in the lungs prevents oxygen from going into it, any person inhaling these toxic fumes eventually dies of suffocation.

    Below is an image of a toxic vapor bomb:

    In my opinion, this is very interesting information. Indeed, many things were invented in Asian countries long before they appeared in Europe or America. I respect their ideas, it's really cool!

    The empires of Asia and Europe were already industrialized in ancient times and were making groundbreaking discoveries, inventions and structures like farms, ranches, agricultural terraces, aquaculture centers, cisterns, apartment blocks, animal mill, watermill, and windmill factories, blast furnaces, oil refineries, roads, highways, cantilever bridges, drawbridges, suspension bridges, causeways, ocean going ships, telecommunications in the form of smoke signals, computers such as the abacus, siege machines such as the battering ram, mobile siege ladder, mobile moat crossing bridge, armored siege tower, ballista, and catapult, oar powered battleships armed with catapults, incendiary bombs such as the fire jar, fire pot, and fire stone, and even artificial islands that were used as commercial and naval relay stations for ships.

    In ancient times, there were many smart people, despite the lack of a centralized education system. It would seem that now humanity should be smarter, there should be more scientists and inventors thanks to easy access to knowledge. But, apparently, knowledge should be in short supply for people to strive for it.
