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.
