The Trebuchet Catapult

Satisfactory Essays
The trebuchet catapult was one of the oldest catapults ever used in war. It's projectiles were mainly heavy rocks or sticks. When launched, this catapult could deal enough damage to knock down buildings, walls and other catapults. The trebuchet was designed on a T shaped frame with a long staff in the middle and another across the top. One end of the top shaft had a counterweight and at the other end was a basket that held the projectiles.
