Description

It is the general object of my present invention to improve the details of construction and method of operation of such magazine rockets to the end that more accurate and reliable results may be attained by their use, particularly for purposes of war. With this general object in view, an important feature of my invention relates to the provision of cartridge feeding means so designed that the balance of the rocket is substantially preserved during the entire flight of the rocket. This is a matter of great importance as the flight of an unbalanced rocket is erratic and the desired objective cannot be accurately attained. In the preferred embodiment of my invention this desirable result is attained by feeding the cartridges alternately from diametrically opposed magazine tubes.
