KOREAN TURTLE SHIP

In 1592, the de facto ruler of Japan, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, ordered the invasion of Korea. Little did he know that the Koreans would fiercely resist their invasion, nor did he know that the Koreans had weapons technology far more advanced than that of Japan. Among that advanced technology was a heavily armed and armored warship called the “turtle ship”, a tough and mighty gunboat that better resembled a floating tank rather than a ship.
