Warfare in ancient India was fascinating and cunning after the incredible introduction of firearms. quite ideally therefore it is not an overstatement to say that the concept of firearms origibated in ancient India.

The earliest use and spread of firearms, i.e. cannon, in the ancient Indian sub-continent can prob ably be traced to the second half of the fifteenth century and the cam paigns of Sultan Mahmud Bigarh of Gujarat. However, between that time period and 1498, when the Portuguese arrived in Calicut present day Kozhikode, in Kerala on the southern Indian coast, neither cannon nor smaller firearms notably harquebus and matchlock had come to form an integral part of the Indian arsenal. This situation came to be modified, however, in considerable measure during the first century of the Portuguese presence in India. Thus, by the close of the sixteenth century, cannon had become omnipresent in the armouries of every major south Indian ruler.
