Interesting images, the first is of course much famous. It shows the difference between the vasi, being (probably) anti-personelle, and the bombard, treated in the early age of gunnery just like a novelty trebuchet, for hurling stone balls onto fortifications via steep angle. I find the stone placed at the muzzle questionable, as I think there would hardly be any ballisticks produced like that.
