War chariots were a type of carriage used by the Army of Nockmaar. It was invented shortly after the enchantress Bavmorda seized power, though she probably did not create it herself. Drawn by two to six horses, a war chariot could carry up to four warriors and attain speeds of twenty to twenty-five miles per hour. Sometimes, sharp knives were mounted on it's wheel hubs, though never when it was ridden among other Nockmaar troops. The Nockmaar warhorses were trained to leap over prone soldiers in their path, so the chariot could run over victims with its iron-fitted wheels.
