"Onager: These early catapults were based on ancient Roman technology, they used tensioned rope that when released launched stones at enemy fortifications."

"Catapult: Catapults were increasingly important as a weapon to destroy castle fortifications as castles became bigger and stronger."

"Mangonel: Mangonels were similar to trebuchets in that they used counter weights rather than tensioned rope to trigger the launch of projectiles."
