Series: A team of engineers, artists, and carpenters attempt to bring Leonardo da Vinci's most advanced inventions to life using only materials available during the artist's lifetime.

Program: The team takes a shot at constructing one of da Vinci's most futuristic designs: the armored tank. This machine, envisioned by Leonardo in the fifteenth century, could rival modern-day inventions. But will it work? The team must engineer a steel frame strong enough to support the wooden exterior while light enough to be powered by two hand cranks.
