Codex Atlanticus folio 159r

Multiple Sling

Leonardo was inspired by the sling, an ancient weapon that allowed stone projectiles to be hurled forcefully.

This machine was equipped with eight slings positioned at the end of each arm, which could hurl stones in any direction. The idea was to build an economical defensive weapon with easily available materials and without the complications of firearms.
Given the highly dangerous nature of the mechanism, Leonardo studied a release system to securely activate the machine from far away.
