"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

Thats even more overkill than the Genie nuclear tipped air to air missile.

I think our American cousins may need locking up too, they were developing a pidgeon guided anti ship missile in the 40s.

The USA also experimented with coal dust based bombs in WW2 (apparently effective when they went off, but too high a likelihood of a dud). The UK looked at cornflour based ones. The UK also tried aerial mines.

Basically all sorts of barmy stuff was tried in WW2, and some of it actually worked! (Flail tanks, carpet laying tanks, etc., and the bouncing bomb).

With hingsight some ideas look plainly silly, but they weren't necessarily any more ludicrous than the ones that worked!
