weapon 101
Lockheed Martin Catapult Project Mission objective is to successfully deinse, build, and test a large sized trebuchet that can throw a 24 pound water melon 275 feet. We have chosen a weighted trebuchet for the following reasons. The trebuchet differs from a trodishanal catapult by using a rope sling to increase the length of the arm, well still keeping the arm relatively light. This significantly increases range. Seconded we will be using a 600-700 pound counter weight consisting of sand bags in a large wooden box. This is the so that we will not be dealing with large amounts of tension( that are used in roman ballista and such weapons ) and the possibility of shrapnel if the stricter fails. #Catapult_trebuchet
