Explosive Rockets are weapons that utilize a thrust-generating engine (typically via chemical reaction) to deliver a warhead, and were first utilized in warfare in 13th century China.[1] Gunpowder rockets saw widespread use as assault and artillery weapons following spread of the technology by the Mongols. Further refinements were made by Lagari Hasan Çelebi of the Ottoman Empire (manned flight); Kazimierz Siemienowicz of Poland (an artillery manual); Hyder Ali and son Tipu Sultan, rulers of Mysore, India (iron-cased rockets); and William Congreve of Britain (propellant, motor design).

During World War I, the recent invention of the airplane allowed commanders to defend against airships and balloons that remained out of reach of ground batteries, by means of aerial rocket attacks. The Le Prieur rocket was first used in Verdun in 1916. Further development led to widespread use during World War II and countless conflicts thereafter.
