Back in the day, Saturday morning cartoons were loaded with over-the-top weapons of destruction to stop the likes of a fast-moving Road Runner. Wile E. Coyote had high hopes to catch that bird, but somehow always failed at his quest. Well, the weapons he used were rather ingenious in many cases. So ingenious, in fact, that they are almost like real-life weapons. Some countries made use of crazy weapons throughout history. Some you would only expect to see on the cartoon. Here are ten historic weapons straight from Wile E. Coyote.
During World War 2, soldiers made use of rat bombs that were left near the boilers of German factories to take down production.
Again, during World War 2, the German military had an intense weapons program. They designed a sound cannon that used methane and oxygen explosions to form a beam of high-pressure sound to kill a target.
