"Chinese pirates were amazing. There were hundreds of Chinese pirates."
David Cordingly in the Below Deck/Chinese pirates DVD(BD) featurette.[src]

Chinese pirates were pirates of Chinese origin.

Culture and equipmentEdit

In the 18th century, Chinese pirates wore traditional Chinese clothes, sailed junks and fought mostly with traditional Chinese weapons (such as the dao, jian, quiang and gùn) as well as with fids, daggers, muskets and pistols. The junks carried cannons and swivel guns.
