The top spy gear used in WWII

In WWII, when the people were counting their remaining days of life on this planet, there were heroes who put their minds to build the best spy gear to use in war.

Their inventive spy ideas and amazing work are still appreciated by people of Museums and they even display that with pride.

Those were highly skillful people who developed such spy gear for war. They used rodent bombs, pipe pistols, biscuit radio, spy cameras and many other sneaky spy gear. You can check out hidden cameras that they used in ww2 for sale here.

Here are the details of top spy gear used in WWII.

Rat Bombs

These bombs were basically rats which were dead and filled with high-quality explosives. Rodent bombs were also the name of these rat bombs. The idea was to target the factory workers of the enemy.

When the factory workers come out of the factory, they would see a rat and they would throw these rat bombs into the fire which then explode to kill many at the spot. It was invented by Germans and it proved to be one of the sneaky spy gear of WWII.

Biscuit Radio

Biscuit the tin radio was one of the great communication inventions which were used by the rivals to deliver the message.

As communication was the key to winning the war, they developed a way to deliver the message without any danger.

They put the communication device inside the biscuit cover and they used it while making no one suspicious as it just looked like a biscuit box. That was a genius stuff made during WWII and modern people loved the idea of biscuit radio.

Pipe Pistol

As the name shows, it was a pipe used for shooting at enemies at once. It could only makeup to a prototype stage and never got implemented.

But the idea of this spy gear was so unique that modern world agents have converted this prototype into a successfully tested weapon.

In WWII soldiers, usually smoked pipe and no one had the idea that this could conceal some serious killing weapon inside it.

Spike Letter Box

This gear was used to conceal messages. No doubt, it was a crafty innovation that was used during WWII for major written communication.

It was really easy to conceal the messages into the stem of spikes by rolling the paper into the hollow port. As it looked like an everyday object, nobody thought that it could be top spy gear.

So, this made it really easy for the soldiers to deliver important messages inconspicuously.
