Korean War / Vietnam War Era "Lazy Dog" Flechette Missile


Listing is for ONE The Lazy Dog (sometimes called a Red Dot Bomb or Yellow Dog Bomb), Missile/Darts. I have seen these offered for sale as used in WW2 and Korea, but defer to the Wikipedia description which is paraphrased below:

The Lazy Dog was a small, unguided kinetic projectile used by the U.S. Air Force. It measured about 1.75 inches (44 mm) in length, 0.5 inches (13 mm) in diameter, and weighed about 0.7 ounces (20 g).[1]

The weapons were designed to be dropped from an aircraft. They contained no explosive charge but as they fell they would develop significant kinetic energy making them lethal and able to easily penetrate soft cover such as jungle canopy, several inches of sand, or light armor. Lazy Dog munitions were simple and relatively cheap; they could be dropped in huge numbers in a single pass. Though their effects were often no more deadly than other projectiles, they did not leave unexploded ordnance (UXO) that could be active years after a conflict ended.

Lazy Dog projectiles were used primarily during the Korean and the Vietnam Wars.

U.S. sales only.
