Leonardo designed the first tank which had cannons all around it. He designed the fist parachute which was more of a triangle than a round parachute and it had a wood frame and it was heavy. Leonardo's diving suit had a bag like mask that went over his head and had tubes that went up to the surface to get air. Leonardo designed the first flying machine called the ornithopter. It was suppose to fly threw the air with its flapping wings.
