Bouncing bomb

The Swannery, The Fleet, Dorset, England

"This is a prototype of an unusual bomb used in World War II to destroy dams. A plane
would fly low above the water above a dam and drop the bomb. The bomb would then skip
along the surface of the water until it hit the dam wall, sank, and then exploded and
ruptured the dam." --Mark
