Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Looking at the etching of the castle walls, its been remodelled since the introduction of gunpowder based siege trains. The angled walls to deflect the impact of shot had been introduced since Charles VIIIth had introduced the mobile siege train, which was improvement over the turkish siege train  you mention.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
