For example: Will KOE include the little darts (forgot the name for a sec; frechettes or something like that) the French aviators used over the trenches early on in the war ?

Etc....

I expect this level of accuracy in KOE, ya know ;\)

There is mention of the 44th Squadron using it in Farman aircraft in the early years. I'm guessing the Germans quickly caught on or had something similar in design.

S!

My Timelife source tells me the French invented it. Soon other nations picked it up. Nasty little things.
