Interesting Facts About the Catapult

First of all, it is interesting that the development and improvement of the catapult closely overlaps withistory of the crossbow, a small arm that throws darts. At first, these two types of weapons were not that different as catapults also fired darts. And only after some time did catapults launch heavier projectiles. Therefore, we retained the catapult's primary function—to throw projectiles.

WoodTrick Catapult: What Are the Benefits?

Our catapult has a mechanism that allows it to fire small objects (the size of a candy bar). To fire a salvo, you must pull the movable part of the catapult down and then release the lever. Our catapult also has four small wheels. Just like in ancient times, a catapult is a weapon that should be easy to move. We've made sure our model can do that as well.
Load, aim, and shoot!

The catapult was invented a long time ago—as early as 399 BC in the city of Siracusa during the reign of the tyrant Dionysius. We were interested in the catapult from the inventors' point of view, so we decided to recreate the ancient mechanism in our wooden Catapult model.
