I am trying to find out about a bomb called "Whistling Death", has anyone heard of it?From what I know this bomb exploded 1000 ft in the air & contained thousands of oval heavy metal objects about 2 1/2" long with 4 metal "wings" at one end.The purpose of this bomb & it's contents was to penetrate tank, helmet or anything else it hit.These bombs were used in WWII & first part of Vietnam, seems they weren't politically correct and therefore discontinued. The name "Whistling Death" came from the sound these objects made as they fell to earth.
I have 3 of these objects & was told this story but I can not confirm it anywhere, please help.
