Historians described the Mysorean rockets developed by Tipu as the scourge of the British. His father, earlier, used the missiles against the British and took them by surprise. Tipu's ingenuity and courage got him the sobriquet "Tiger of Mysore". Tipu Sultan's rocket- missile with iron-cased heat resistant tube could travel long distance and cause formidable damage on the enemy side. The raining dangerous missiles had the Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, on the run for cover and safety in the fourth Mysore war. Some of these rockets were seized by the British army and are currently on display at London's Royal Artillery Museum.
Tipu Sultan has become an immortal Indian ruler in Indian history and, as for his push for Islam during his reign, he, despite his remarkable records, remains a riddle.
