Leonardo also designed a wide variety of artillery weapons.
The design for the armoured car features the most important military requirements: reliability, portability and great firepower.
Leonardo's creative legacy also includes several projects related to bridges. This unusual swing bridge allowed for undisturbed water traffic.
Leonardo based the design of the flapping wing on birds' wings and a faulty hypothesis.
The aim of this extraordinarily complex study was to mimic the different phases of the flight of birds.
The polymath thought that if a screw-like structure can rotate fast enough, it will 'drill' into the air and fly.
The mechanical wing is one of the masterpieces among Leonardo's sketches related to aviation.
Antikkens romerske erobrere hadde effektive beleiringsmaskiner som var utviklet for å angripe befestninger.
Arkimedes var en av de mest geniale forskerne i oldtidens Hellas, som også utmerket seg med militære oppfinnelser.
Hæren til Aleksander den store benyttet beleiringstårn i sine vellykkede angrep mot befestninger.
