So we all know who Leonardo da Vinci is and if you don’t, then he is the guy who painted the Mona Lisa, Last Supper, and Salvator Mundi. But what you don’t know about this famous painter is that he designed death machines on the side. Below are a few of the better ones.
Leonardo da Vinci designed these two horse-drawn carriages armed with swirling limb severing blades. They were designed to plow through the enemy without mercy. In this drawing, you can see the slaughter in gruesome detail.
Leonardo da Vinci designed this machine to hurl small spheres “like hail” that would release smoke to confuse and terrorize the enemy.
Leonardo da Vinci designed these multi-barrelled guns to replace the lag time wasted on canons that took too long to load. All mounted guns were on a single revolving platform, the guns could be loaded first and then fired on rotation, thus eliminating delay.
