Doing Da Vinci Discovery Channel Cannon Tank with Cannons Doing Da Vinci Discovery Channel Series

Watch as a team of designers, engineers, artists, and special effects creators, breathe life into Da Vinci's 500 year old sketches of Mid Evil Tanks w/Gun Turrets, an 80' wooden crossbow, a Castle Siege Tower, the First Machine Gun, the largest catapult ever created & many more.

The Da Vinci Legacy includes some of the most well-known paintings ever created, but his talents exceeded far beyond art; he was also a successful architect and engineer, while his sketches of military weaponry have been highly regarded and studied for nearly 500 years.
