They trained them to guide missiles into ships, why not train them to hurl themselves at aircraft on your six, with a grenade attached

Would work nicely if the jet is on your six tho.... all you need is to release 'em and some of them will surely end up in his engine. Nasty.

Hey! Even if you don't kill him you've still killed the pidgeons! That's something too. And if you survive on top of that.... wow. You need to celebrate!

25 dead pigeons + 15 squashed roaches + 1 beef in a canteen = 120 enemy planes shot down + 45 tanks + 10 battlecruisers? Where can I get the seeds for this wheed?

No, it won't work, the drag from the pigeon + grenade will pitch the rocket down... So the rocket should be applyed on the center-line of the pigeon...

Hmmm... I actually thought about tieing pigeon to one side of the rocket and grenade to the other, but couldn't figure out the rocket release system... But you suggestion may help...

Pidgeons are overrated and uber, be sure - what you need for ultimate street cred and l337 skillzz is a swallow, carrying an explosive coconut. It could grip it by the husk...

Yes. It would have to be a bigger bird. Something like a flamingo. Yep, that would do. Just throw a flamingo out of the window with a grenade attached and that would do the trick.

Reminds me of the kinds of insane speculation after some friends and I started ruminating on Soviet Pavovian mine dog tactics. We came up with the most sinister weapon yet---mine kittens utilizing small amounts of ultra-explosive RDX attached to said kitty cat. Unfortunately, nobody could solve the problem of the notorious untrainability of cats. Perhaps massive amounts of catnip put under the target vehicle?, but the jig would be up when it would be pursued by dozens of cats across country, through towns, etc. Most un-cat-like.

Nah... Flamingo is way too big to keep it in storage... I think even cutting down it's legs won't help. Something with less size but aproximately the same wingspan required... Cats and dogs could be usefull too... If fired with enough power close enough to the enemy aircraft. Although it would be quite difficult to calculate the amount of gunpowder to throw a cat at say 10 000 meters due to difference in weight for different cats... Unless we would be able to put then on the production line...
Greenpeace may object, but for their members we can build a bigger cannon, although gunpowder amount calculations would be even more complicated...

Turtles are the way to go! Their hard shells should be rated for a higher Mach Number than those flimsy birds who will de-feather past 300mph.

Stick a mini-RATO pod into its tail cavity and a special Explosive Helmet on its head. As the turtle flies past the enemy plane, it will retract its head instinctively and trigger the explosive helmet, thus acting as a proximity fuse.

You could have it like a pidgeon mistel or something. A large Seagull ( no such bird by the way) could release the pidgeon close to the target to save fuel.
Alternativly you could get thousands of pidgeons to **** all over a ship and rot it away!!!

How about large roaches(waterbugs)on meth -conditioned to seek out computers,and similar electronics- loaded with as C4 as they can carry on their backs(they'd need a voltage/EMF/RF sensing proximity fuse).Release them near an enemy comm.,radar,computer center and let them blow up radios and comps from the inside.

Now that's 'nuckin' futz'!
