    WW1 French 'Lafayette Escadrille' Air Force Large feathered Flechette, Number Stamped '284'. Sn 13696 - 13696

    This is a WW1 French Air Force 'Lafayette Escadrille' large feathered Flechette. This is the rarer type of flechette as most are all steel. A flechette is a pointed steel projectile, with a vaned tail for stable flight. The name comes from French fléchette, "little arrow" or "dart", and sometimes retains the acute accent in English: fléchette. They were dropped onto cavalry Troops, into the trenches and anywhere they could cause damage. This large flechette was designed probably to penetrate observation balloons and Zeppelins before the incendiary rounds were brought into use in aircraft. They were very effective. This flechette has a feathered tail and hexagonal steel dart. The steel dart is stamped with "284" and the '8' has been over stamped over an original '3'. The dart is very sharp with a pencil point. They were very effective if dropped in numbers. They are rare to find in this condition as any flechette's dropped buried themselves into the ground if they didn't find a target. This flechette weighs 450grams. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13696
