Although it is unknown whether this was used for war, the Log Thrower is clearly a refrence to the Scottish Olympic sport "Caber Tossing". In this sport, burly men attempt to chuck a log as far as they can over their heads, although unlike this unit's log, caber logs would be a very tall log, and not just a section of a log.
