Teaching set

Tiger Secret Teachings 4.1 (31)

Observed lessons

  • Be prepared. Know what military equipment you will need and get it place before you need it.
  • Include machines to cause fear, break through enemy lines, propel missiles and generally kill and cause havoc.
  • Include weapons for different types of terrain and action.

Discussion

This teaching details the various weapons and military equipment that would be needed for an army of ten thousand soldiers. This includes such as 'Great Fu-Hsu Attack Chariots' and the 'flying hook' that is thrown into a mass of soldiers to inflict fear and injury. There is also perhaps a surprising breadth of technology, from giant crossbows to rapidly deployable bridges and floats to cross rivers and lakes.

The lesson for modern business is to think ahead and use the right tools for the job. Well-designed equipment can make a huge difference.
