If you’ve watched our military shows, you’ll know something about weapons. You might know that the USA has spent a mind-boggling amount of money on the F-35 program. But did the program justify all that money? That surely depends on America’s future military actions and the effectiveness of its super (and super-expensive) multirole fighter.

We can, however, look back through history and see that some weapons were more effective than others. In this show we won’t point out of the obvious, such as spear, sword, bow and arrow, gun, or the atomic bomb, but we’re going to look at other more specific or unusual weapons that were particularly useful in times of war and perhaps a surprise for enemies.

Welcome to this episode of the Infographics Show, The most successful war weapons ever invented.

  1. Hey infographics show, I just would like to mention that the rpg-7 does not mean rocket propelled grenade, it’s Russian. And it means Ruchnoy Protivotankoviy Granatomyot. Which loosely translate to something like Hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher.

  2. The first Europeans to use cannons were Serbians in the battle of Kosovo 1389 against the Ottoman hordes likewise using the same technology. The world can write us out of every history book, we will never forget.

  3. Fun fact not only does RPG not mean rocket propelled grenade it in fact does not even fire a grenade by definition RPG really stands for Ruchnoi Protivotankovye Granatamyot
