Scything wagon

Carro falciante

The idea of a scything wagon can be found in many of Leonardo's drawings. Pulled by horses, the wagon moves a system of gears which then spins the scythes with devastating effects. Leonardo points out that this weapon could cause damages to friends as well as enemies.
