While trebuchets were common siege engines in Medieval Times, Leonardo’s take on the most powerful weapon of the time was unique – his design used one main mast, different from all others before.

Based on his drawing from the Codex Atlanticus, da Vinci’s trebuchet was a design likely made for the Duke of Milan in about 1482, to impress the Duke of his skills as a military engineer. While it is not known if it was ever used in battle, you can bring Leonardo’s trebuchet to life with this working model!
