Product Description

In the range of Leonardo’s inventions his scythed chariot stands apart. Chariots had been in use for several thousands before da Vinci (check out one of Wooden.City models Roman Chariot). He only wanted to improve it. All in all, da Vinci’s invention has the same wheels as the Roman chariot but had improvement of spinning scythes mounted on the chariot. Unlike the ancient chariots,

Leonardo da Vinci’s model of a chariot was not driven by a charioteer. The horses were to drive into the enemy rows so that the spinning cutting blades or sickles could inflict casualties among enemy formations. Chariot wheel spikes are spinning in motion making heavy death toll. To be fair, it must be said that this chariot design was never implemented and remained ink on paper.
