WWI Royal Flying Corp Ariel Dart "Flechette"
WWI Royal Flying Corp Ariel Dart "Flechette".
Original flechette, used on unsuspecting troops at the front. The darts were transported in wicker baskets via bi-plane to the front where they were dropped on the troops below causing death and serious injury. This piece is a known example used by the RFC. The dart has lost one of its fins, which was common. Still a very interesting and historical piece.
