With the thunder of hooves, rumble of wheels,whiny of horses and cries of the crew one of the ancient worlds most terrifying weapons surges into battle.

These fearsome weapons  were probably first used by the Achaemenid Persians during the Greek and Persian wars between 467 BC and 458 BC, as a response to the massed ranks of Greek hoplites.They were later deployed by the Macedonian Successor Seleucid Empire against the Republican Romans but with little or no effect against the well disciplined ranks or Roman legionaries.

 Unfortunately for the crew and horses this was the usual outcome.

  2. Scythed chariots are very nice...and impressive!
