Aerial Anti Zeppelin Ranken Exploding Dart

The definitive steampunk weaponry.

It was the logical way to take out targets that were essentially massive balloons filled with flammable gas. When British First World War pilots were asked to destroy German Zeppelins, they did not turn to guns - but a giant exploding dart.

Now one of the foot-long steel-tipped darts is being sold at auction, without the explosives, and is expected to fetch £1,200.

A few hours in the orgone generator and this will fend off anything in the aether. It's a snip at the price.
