The Herstel-Wenckler Pigeon Bomb, more commonly referred to as just the pigeon bomb, is an experimental weapon used by Master Engineers.[1a][1b] Pigeons are fitted with a metal harness with a bomb inside and trained to fly towards the enemy. If all goes to plan the bomb is released, falls towards the foe and explodes right on target. However, if the fuse is cut badly the bomb will explode early whilst still attached to the pigeon. Even worse, if the confused bird returns to the Engineer the bomb will explode in the Empire's lines.[1a]
