    The source is rather suspect, but it does have a few good pictures of the described device in training.

    Dog Bombs

    Poor dogs.

    I remember reading somewhere that they stopped doing this because the dogs kept running back to their Soviet friends instead of under German tanks.

    I wonder that people can make the distinction between the dog and it's equally noble cousin, the horse?

    And it just had to be an American who makes that comment, if his avatar is any indication of his citizenship...

    I can see this being very effective, but any civilized country would not use this today, would they?

    This rather depends who you believe, Choctaw:
    Military dolphin
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A military dolphin is a dolphin trained for military uses. The United States and Russian militaries have trained and employed oceanic dolphins for several reasons. Such military dolphins have been trained to rescue lost naval swimmers or to locate underwater mines.

    The U.S. Navy trains dolphins and sea lions under the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program, which is based in San Diego, California. Military dolphins were used by the U.S. Navy during the First and Second Gulf Wars. About 75 dolphins are in the program.

    The Soviet Navy operated a research facility ... to explore military uses of marine mammals at Kazachya Bukhta, near Sevastopol. The Russian military is believed to have closed its marine mammal program in the early 1990s. In 2000, the press reported that dolphins trained to kill by the Soviet Navy had been sold to Iran.

    Due to the secrecy of such practice, rumors of military dolphins include training them to lay underwater mines, to locate enemy combatants, or to seek and destroy submarines using kamikaze methods. There has even been speculation about the potential development of sophisticated equipment, such as poison darts, sonar jamming devices, and so on for dolphins, and about combat between cetaceans of both superpowers. The U.S. Navy denies ever having trained its marine mammals to harm or injure humans in any fashion or to carry weapons to destroy ships.
