Which country invented gunpowder used in warfare and produced a variety of gunpowder weapons, including flamethrowers, rockets, bombs, and mines? Answers include: China, Russia, USA and something else.

Flamethrowers and Bombs have been around since first century AD. Greek Fire was used by the Byzantines and used in the first flamethrowers mankind has seen 800 years before the Chinese. Greek fire was also used to create grenades (bombs) 800 years before the Chinese. In 917 AD the Chinese flamethrowers were based off of the Greek Fire machines and did in fact not use gunpowder at all.

Additionally, I forgot who mentioned this but I did intend Gaul, not Gual.
