- An onager did not fire at the same angle as a mangonel, a mangonel fired at an angle so the projectiles could clear walls, whereas an onager fired straight forward.
How about someone mention when onagers were invented? Seems to be a pretty basic piece of information.
Actually, I think I'll mark this a stub. It seems rather short. --Simetrical 01:24, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC)

It has been done!
The quote given from Ammianus Marcellinus is misleading, at best. In the direct latin translation, the great historian does not mention use of Greek Fire in conjunction with the onager (or, indeed, at all throughout his Antiquities). I suggest finding a more accurate translation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:14, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
