Leonardo da Vinci's Armoured Vehicle - (also referred to as an Armoured Car) was considered by some as a precursor to the modern tank. Leonardo often brought nature into his drawings and this design came from the shape of the turtle shell!
A prolific inventor and artist, Leonardo was also a military engineer, and in the late 1400's designed the first true armoured vehicle equipped with cannons. Powered by humans, with a full circle of cannons, this would have been an incredible sight on the battlefield!
