Technology In World War 1

Guns - Machine guns
The Vickers gun was produced by the British with mobility in mind. It was a heavy-calibre machine gun. It required a minimum of six men to operate.
The American invented Lewis gun was the Vickers lighter but less trustworthy offspring.
Air Support and Warfare
Early spotters were unarmed but soon began using pistols.
Soon they were built for dropping bombs and being used to shoot down other planes. A German invention put machine guns behind the propeller for the pilot to operate.
Germany led a design to zeppelins as bombing raids.
Air superiority was a significant factor to the second half of the war.
