default Ancient Filipino Weapons

The Lantaka of the moros is a double-barreled cannon. After firing, the barrel would be rotated (like our modern Gatlings) so it can be reloaded while the other is being aimed and fired. An ancient version of fast firing guns! Also, it was mounted on swivel base insted on being fixed. Ships carrying this gun can be more maneuverable in this way. The moro privateers who used these terrified and impressed the Spaniards.

So impressed that it was reverse-engineered by the Spaniards and sent to South America

The Kampilan is a long sword widely used in the pre-conquest Philippine Islands, and still in use by most Filipino Muslims, and other Filipino groups today, especially by the Maguindanao, and the Maranao Moros population. The term "Kampilan" is known all over the Islands, but it describes various types of swords. Mactan chieftain Rajah Lapu-Lapu, and his warriors were reported to have wielded this weapon to great effect when they defeated the Spaniards, and killed Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in the Battle of Mactan on April 27, 1521. The sword is mentioned in ancient Filipino epics such as the Hinilawod of the Hiligaynon society.

The Kampilan is single-edged and about 34 to 40 inches long. The hilt is quite long to counterbalance the weight and length of the blade. Most hilts are of hardwood, invariably with the same shape: a cross guard ("Sampak") and a Pommel shaped in an animal's wide open mouth, be it a Crocodile or "Bakonawa", with "Okir" carvings. Some Kampilan have goat hair tassels attached to the hilt.

The blade is thick and narrow at its base but gets thinner and wider to the truncated point. Some blades have a spike at the point. The original Kampilan used by Rajah Lapu-Lapu have a laminated blade with a central layer of steel; some older examples show a "Pamor" specific to the Arabic pattern-welding process. A competently-forged Kampilan has a blade tough and versatile enough to hack off limbs, cut through vegetation, and even lumber.
