Leonardo’s Bombarda

The original design dated 1504, is located on sheet 33r of the Atlantic Codex,  at the ” Biblioteca Ambrosiana ” in Milan.

The design, a stunning drawing, shows the entire sequence of operation of a weapon . The big mouth and the shape of the mortar “BOMBARDA” is able to shoot big bullets, exploding in the air, that release a large number of smaller bombs that spread in a wide area on the battlefield and explode again is turn into smaller splinters, are able to defeat a large number of enemies.

The operation is similar to today’s cluster bombs .

Our model is based on that design . Made entirely of natural wood , without varnish or superficial treatments, allowing  you to colour it or refine it according to your personal taste.

The instructions will guide you step by step to mount it easily and without errors.
