LOL man.

never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,

This is a capital ship of the Chinese Treasure Fleets. They were four decked, enormous vessels equipped with cannons, rockets, and cruise missiles. Their hulls were reinforced with concrete, had a rather shallow keel, and their main rudder was external and retractable allowing them to sail both on open sea and in rivers. They are the largest wooden ships ever constructed. Their lower decks were made up of numerous watertight partitions, which stored drinking water and also prevented the ship from completely flooding in the case of a hull breach. Western shipbuilders wouldn’t adopt bulkhead partitions until the 19th Century. There were some dozen of these capital ships, but the entire Treasure Fleet comprised some 400 ships of varying size, 300 of which were dedicated war ships. By comparison, the British navy in the time of Napoleon could sustain only 100 Man o’Wars. The Treasure Fleet had the same amount of men as the Spanish Armada of 1588, but twice as many ships. The Treasure Fleet was an unstoppable force. The fleet had a varying array of different types of ships, from the capital ships above, to gunboats, ramming vessels, transport ships, or water tankers that contained enough provisions for 28,000 men. They virtually wiped out all piracy in the Indian ocean and the eastern coast of Africa, during their seven expeditions. The only thing that could defeat the Treasure Fleets was the Emperor himself. A new Emperor ordered the entire fleet disbanded and records of the expeditions burned. Had the Treasure Fleets still been active when the Portuguese rounded the Horn of Africa, they could have easily halted European colonialism in the Indian Ocean.

Corruption would have destroyed the Chinese fleet from within.

Chinese bureaucracy was efficient at this point, so I don’t see what you’re saying. Unlike the Spanish and Portuguese explorers who became something like a king (the Spanish crown only received 10% of silver profits) all imperial officials were entirely subservient to the Emperor. Any corruption or insubordination was swiftly and harshly dealt with. This is how they operated some of the longest lasting empires in history.

^Truth
Yet, China’s demise was ultimately due not to England, Germany,Portugal, or Japan, but China’s insistence on isolationism.
Sure, they invented gunpowder and had rockets and artillery centuries before any European power wielded it, and sure they had the biggest fleet in the world and had advanced naval weaponry…..but that didn’t count for jack shit when the majority of the Manchu arsenal in the late 19th Century were matchlocks and outdated, short ranged, and relatively innacurate artillery, when they were facing Royal Marines with Gatling guns and Germans with Mausers, backed by the greatest fleets of the day, with 12in. guns to boot.

These are my laser-engraved illustrations done for the Moon Crisis: Sailor Moon Tribute Art Show held at Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim from July 2014 to August 2014. Tomorrow, or today now, August 9th at 6 PM, is the second opening reception, so I thought I’d share these on tumblr. :)
