3D Models of Other Weapons used for the battlefield, defense, missions, war, fight.
Modern weapons are often very sophisticated technology. Weapons are mainly used by the army and law enforcement agencies. The possession and use of weapons by civilians in modern countries is strictly controlled by law. Attitudes toward weapons in the use of individuals in different countries are different. Virtually every country prohibits its citizens from owning certain types of weapons: some states (such as the United States), allow individuals to own firearms for self-defense, while in other states they need special permission to obtain weapons.
There are several ways to classify other weapons: by purpose, by the category of persons using it, by mobility/stationarity, by constructive implementation, by the principle of influencing the target or by the principle of countering the damaging effects of the enemy’s weapons, etc.
In the beginning, medieval weapons did not differ much from other weapons of the previous period. At the end of the era of the ancient world there appeared heavily armed cataphracts, which became the prototype of the heavily armed knights of the classical Middle Ages and, accordingly, they needed a weapon capable of fighting them. Therefore, the end of the Middle Ages was marked by the appearance of firearms. The main types of weapons in this period were: melee weapons, throwing weapons, as well as firearms and siege weapons. Of the cold arms were the most common swords, daggers, and combat peaks. (The medieval peaks proper are direct descendants of Macedonian sarissas.) In addition, various sabers, swords, rapiers, etc., appear. Bows and crossbows were also distributed from throwing weapons. But here slings have found combat use only as a compact throwing weapon, in situations where compactness is more important than the range of aimed fire. The firearms that appeared in that period include muskets, arquebuses, food, as well as cannons and bombers. In the arsenal of siege weapons then there were both the same ballista, catapults, rams, trebuchets, and the first samples of the siege artillery (in particular, the same bombers). At the same time, the process of squeezing siege weapons throwing out with other weapons is already gaining momentum.
