I suppose there were "traditional" slingers in e.g. England or France until the late 19th or even the early 20th centuries, but that the end of rural culture did for them.

Thema Teppich.
Es sind viele bogenschützen abgebildet. Gefunden wurden aber viel mehr Spitzen von Armbrust Bolzen. Es gibt nicht eine einzige Abbildung einer Armbrust auf dem Teppich.

Es gibt aber historische Bilder von slinger in schwerer rüstung. Es dürfte also eine Wirkung gegeben haben.

Hussiten setzten slinger sehr erfolgreich ein.
Es gibt in Prag zur Erinnerung sogar eine Statue.

Es Stimmt nicht das sie mehr Zeit zum lernen brauchen. Für einen120 oder 180lbs Bogen lernen und trainieren Sie ebenfalls viele Jah

It ain't target practice if you keep hitting.

Es ist russisch.
Leider ist noch nicht ganz klar wer hier kämpft.
Erstaunlich ist das Bogen gegen muskete kämpft.
Es gibt auch slinger zu Pferd.

Vor vielen Jahren sagte mir ein russischer Historiker, das es in Russland keine sling in Kämpfen gegeben hat. Heute wissen wir, daß er definitiv Unrecht hatte. Es gab sogar erstaunlich viele slinger. Ebenso in Polen. Da arbeite ich gerade mit einigen Museen zusammen. Es gibt sogar historische Funde.

Agincourt.

That's pretty much all you need to know about the effectiveness of the british long bow and the english archer.

If the british had been armed with slings, they'd have been slaughtered to a man.

Alex. Das hört man oft. Doch es war nicht nur der Bogen alleine. Auch andere Faktoren spielten eine große Rolle. Das Wetter. Die Wahl des Schlachtfeldes. Die Dummheit der Franzosen. Die befestigte Stellung der Engländer. Wieviele große schlachten mit langbogen kennen sie noch. Man lernte ziemlich schnell und stellte sich taktisch darauf ein. Slings werden bis heute verwendet. Stellen Sie sich einen palestinenser mit langbogen vor. 😁
Keine Fragen war der langbogen eine sehr gefährliche Waffe. Wie die Schleuder auch.

That sling's being used on a horse! It's such a shame that that's never talked about, I assume, because there is so little historical information on it. Mounted slingers make a lot of sense.
