It was packed with a large amount of explosives on the dead body of the rat, with the plan that the rat bomb that was carried with coal spread throughout Germany and exploded with heat if somewhere thrown into the boiler.

From a long time ago, humans seemed to think that birds could be used as weapons. If a fire is placed on a bird making a nest in a city with a castle wall and that bird will return to its nest, it will be a serious thing Is written in Tang and Ming's tactical guidance documents in China, in the 10th centuryKiev Taiko Riga ratioOr the eleventh centuryKing Norway Haral IIIIt seems that each actually made it successful. It was the American oral surgeon Lyle S. Adams during the Second World War that brought out the possibilities of this tactic suggested using millions of bats instead of birds. Attach a small bomb to the bat's legs and pack it in a special bomb in units of thousands and drop this bat-packed bomb in the sky over the target. It seems that the bomb was designed to break outside when the altitude became a certain level, and the bat seemed to be popping out from there. At dawn, the bat hides himself in a dark place to sleep, so only to explode the bomb with a timer. The first result was quite good, but the development of the atomic bomb began and the army pulled out of the bat bomb.

This is based on the property that cats hate water, and if you drop a bomb that attached a cat to a ship, cats that you do not want to get wet in the water might induce a bomb to get a little closer to the ship It seems that it was an idea. However, it was not clear how cats weighing only 5 kg led to induce 500 pounds (about 250 kg) of bombs. After all, this project could not pass the test phase.
