Yep, my favorite siege machine, it was awesome when they hurled boulders, fireballs and helmets filled with heads.

Time to get back to 2011.

I see that the Ukranian army have the latest war-tech! Does it have the GPS enabled head-in-helmet, guidance system?

@CElliottUK: It has homing pigeons, if they don't get eaten first. Also, they send a member of the artillery unit to stand at the target to gauge FFE. Often, the member is dismembered and sent back via the same delivery system, this system does not work very well, they need to iron a few bugs out of it.

Wow, they still use them?
Just made a one with my daughter to be honest, throws clay balls all of twenty feet across the living room!
