    Longbows suck, recurves are more efficient. The English were the only archer culture who used longbows, all the other ones used recurves.

    Why the hell is the boomerang up there? The bow revolutionized hunting and warfare. The gun revolutionized warfare again. The boomerang? Some tribesmen threw it at each other, the end.

    The gladius is a more sound battlefield sword. It can be used in tight formations, and as a thrusting weapon, can more easily find its way into holes in armor.

    Didn't see the show. Want to see the show. But this site has a different list:

    The Winchester ’73
    The long-bow
    The pike
    The Kalashnikov AK47
    The "Schwerer Gustav"
    The Tommy Gun
    The rapier
    The Walther PPK
    Hands and feet
    The boomerang

    What opposition? England had virtually the only professional archers in Europe at the time, which is why they kicked a ton of ass.

    If i have to make the list

    1. Duh human mind.
    2. Sword (any type) Sword are pretty much a cultural universal.
    If that is not specific enough for you then the Gladius.
    3. MG34 German machine gun which is the template for most modern MGs
    4. Long bow Revolutionized feudal combat.
    5. Pike
    6. Spear Mam's first constructed weapon. Dont take hand axe **** to me, it isnt constructed unless it has two seperate peices incorporated into one.
    7. 1911a1. not the first semi-auto pistol but certanly the gold standard.
    8. Arcubus
    9. which ever mauser has the original mauser action..... Cant look it up at work
    10. Tazer. Makeing combat less deadly for the 21st century.

    These are all hand held/personal weapons list would be different if we include weapon system/ vehicles/nukes

    Tell me what you think?

    All these lists suck. The most revolutionary weapons are the bow, the gun, the airplane, and the automatic gun, in that order.

    What about the tank? WW1 tank trumps machine gun.....Airplane still not really viable.

    Tanks were worthless in WW1 (so were planes), and weren't nearly as revolutionary as the machine gun. The machine gun forced a massive change in tactics, because the old rank and file armies would be shot to pieces. Tanks just picked up the job that heavy cavalry couldn't fulfill anymore.

    Same reason the airplane is on the list, over the tank; a complete revision of warfare.

    I saw that list tryign to find out what the one I was missing was, but couldn't remember some of those being on the show? (The Winchester and the Gustav, but I specifically remember the Berret being there)

    As for tanks I think they were talking just hand held weapons. If you add tanks and planes, then you have to figure out the best of each! (Which were also good shows)
