Leonardo da Vinci Weapons of War & InventionThe basic design of the catapult had been in use for hundreds of years before da Vinci embarked on improving it. He actually came up with different models. This particular design used a double leaf spring to produce an enormous amount of energy in order to propel stone projectiles or incendiary over great distances. Loading of the two large leaf springs was accomplished using a hand crank on the side of the catapult.
