Warwick Castle Trebuchet, claimed (by the staff at Warwick Castle) to be the largest Trebuchet in the world today.

22 tonnes of wood and metal, it would have been used as part of a team of siege machines of up to 120 units used simultaneously firing up to 150kg with each shot.

More impressively, we saw it in action firing a projectile about 2 football fields!
