The Re-Inventors: Invention War
Can you actually improve on the inventions of Da Vinci? Matt and Jeremy aim to find out as they take four re-invented weapons from past episodes (including two from Leonardo) and rethink, redesign, and rebuild them using modern technology. A 15th Century tank and machine gun, a giant medieval catapult, and an ancient Chinese flamethrower get 21st Century updates. But will the added muscle translate to success on the battlefield? Modifying the old weapons is one thing, testing them is quite another.
