The bat-bomb project was called Project X-Ray, and although it was cancelled, most accounts say that it was an effective weapon. Hibernating bats with bombs attached were put into canisters that would release the bats in mid-air. The bats would then seek shelter, causing the bombs to explode inside buildings.
