"Corrections" from Tactical and Technical Trends

The following corrections were published in Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 34, September 23, 1943.

No. 33, p. 4: The British aerial dart gun and dart for the training of antiaircraft machine gunners were described, with suggestions as to the improvisation of a similar device. Although the article states that the U.S. Army has no dart gun, it has been learned that the M-2 rocket target (see TM 4-236, 29 September 1942) is used for the same purpose as the British employ the aerial dart, and, that as a representation of a plane in flight, it is far superior to the dart. However, it would appear that in isolated posts where rockets may not be available, an improvised dart gun would be a useful training device.
