Warfare is one form of science that is constantly evolving and growing far more deadly in nature. Weapons from olden times were quite crude – basically sharpened pieces of metal and wood – but today we have fully automatic machine guns, fighter jets, and battleships capable of bombarding entire swathes of land. Warfare is an ugly machine, but one that is sometimes required when a hand is forced. That being said, all of those older weapons were quite deadly when they were in style. Here are ten extremely deadly, but now obsolete weapons.
The Fairey Swordfish was a popular torpedo bomber biplane used during the 1930s. The plane used ideas from World War 1, but adapted and improved for World War 2. The three-seat plane knocked out a large portion of the Italian navy.
Vickers Machine Gun
The Vickers Machine Gun is an incredibly outdated machine gun used by the British during World War 1 and 2. The British were outmatched by the German MG-34 and MG-42, two far more superior machine guns. The Vickers, however, was the main gun of the Brits for decades.
