Tipu's army was the first to use rockets during the Anglo-Mysore war but there is no record of him using the missile defense systems.
There are accounts of rockets being used in the 13th and 15th centuries by the Chinese and Europeans, respectively. But, the one used by Tipu was the most advanced of them all according to the British. Tipu's rockets were made of steel while its casings were made of iron, providing the rocket with maximum penetration capability. The propellant used was gunpowder. However, there are no records of any sort of missile defense system as he was the first to use rockets while his enemies did not possess that kind of technology at that time, which eliminates the possibility for Tipu to need one.
