The most 'weird' bullets in world gun history

Guns are an impressive invention of mankind and throughout the entire history of development, there have been many peculiar guns with unique bullets that have been used.

Dardick bullets (triangle bullets)

This type of ammunition consists of a bullet usually inside and a plastic outer shell.

First of all, the unique ammunition designed by David Dardick in the mid-50s of the last century. This type of ammunition is called by the short name "Dardick bullet" or "triangle bullet".

This design was created by David Dardick exclusively for the Dardick 1500 pistol also designed by the same author. The unique type of triangular bullet in that it allows reloading the Dardick 1500 from the side with an extremely unique outer shell.

Basically, this type of ammunition consists of a bullet usually inside and a plastic outer shell. This design proved to be quite strange but the reality was extremely bad, so the "triangle bullet" and the Dardick 1500 itself became extinct soon after.

Jet bullets

Design of jet bullets allows to minimize the recoil of the gun when firing.

Another type of bullets is also equally peculiar but once considered "revolution in the ammunition industry" that is . bullets. This type of jet bullets has the same mechanism as the bullets of the bazooka guns and was released at the same time as this revolutionary anti-tank weapon.

The design of the bullets allows to minimize the recoil of the gun when fired, the bullet will accelerate gradually after getting out of the barrel thanks to the rear jet system. The design of this type of bullet can basically be considered as a miniature rocket.

However, because there is no tail wing, this "miniature rocket" has very poor flight stability, only effective within 100 meters back. Outside of a distance of 100 meters, the orbiting bullet flew around uncontrollably and this kind of bullet was almost impossible to hit the target at a distance of 150 meters.

Bullet Puckle 1718 (square bullet)

This type of bullet and the Puckle's 1718 have never been used in practice.

The 1718 Puckle can be called simply . square bullets because it has a square. This can be considered for the first time and also the last time in history, scientists try to make a bullet with a square instead of the usual round.

In fact, this type of ammunition and Puckle's 1718 have never been used in practice, but the little information left over from the 18th century confirms this bullet size much better than conventional bullets. .

Many weapons designers later simulated the flight of the Puckle with this square bullet on the computer and as a result the size of this bullet was capable of flying no more than 200 meters, the kinetic energy was very low and not even A sheep can be shot at this distance.

Rocket bullets

The design of this "rocket" is extremely simple with a slender shape like a bullet and four tail wings.

Finally, the "missile" type is structured as a bullet, which was used extensively in the past and popularized in the Vietnam War as Lazy Dog.

The design of this "rocket" is extremely simple with a slender shape like a bullet and four tail wings. Lazy Dog will be released from aircraft at high altitudes, the gravity of the Earth will cause them to speed up when falling and the four tail wings help their nose to always plug into the ground, ensuring the effective destruction target is the highest.

This simple and effective weapon can be deployed from any medium, at 6000 meters Lazy Dog when it hits the ground, it will be able to penetrate 60mm of homogeneous steel - meaning puncture Roof armor of nearly every type of tank used during the Vietnam War.
