Trebuchets used for both offense and defense
In the foreground is a horseman knocked from his mount by a large stone
missile, purportedly from a trebuchet atop the castle wall.
To the right is a bow powered catapult .
To the left is a hinged counterweight trebuchet . The view shows
the block and tackle for gaining mechanical advantage when drawing
the beam into the cocked position as well as the hinged counterweight cabinet
The small counterweight, perpendicular to the main cabinet, is designed
to damp the swing of the beam, allowing a greater rate of fire.
