The TREBUCHET was the medieval equivalent of the modern field howitzer. It used a counterweight system to hurl rocks, barrels loaded with pitch, or in some cases even rotting, disease-ridden corpses at the enemy castle. The range of the trebuchet could be adjusted by varying the weight of the counterweight or by adjusting the angle of the sling release pin allowing the sling to be released either earlier or later in the trajectory of the arm. Trebuchets were built during sieges and were usually assembled in situ on the battlefield by specialized carpenters and craftsmen.
This kit allows you to build a fully functional trebuchet. It comes equipped with a windlass and ratchet system to retract the arm. An open-able counterweight box allows the user to adjust the amount of weight used. Interchangeable release pins allow the user to adjust the angle of the release pin. A swivel mechanism allows the entire trebuchet to pivot about its base.
