    New Technologies In World War I
    Farman
    In 1912 Henri and Maurice Farman started an aviation company in Boulogne-sur-Seine. The Farman MF-7 and MF-II were two of their planes widely used by the Allied forces at the beginning of the war. The French Army Air Service, Royal Flying Corps, Belgians, Italians, and the Royal Naval Air Service all used these popular planes.

    Many methods were used to try and destroy planes from the ground. Some people used rifles, but they didn't work very well. Antiaircraft artillery was the main weapon against planes. These heavy guns set atop a Pierce-Arrow five-ton armored lorry chassis. They could fire four rounds a minute at a range of 3,000 yards. Most of the time they were placed in groups to increase their effectiveness. By June 1916 Britain had 271 guns, and by 1918 they had 349.

    One of the most productive aircraft designers in World War I was Gabriel Voisin. He created the Voisin planes, which were widely used by the Allies, and became the standard Allied bombers. The French Army Air Service, Royal Flying Corps, Russian, and Belgian air forces used them often. The Voisin V was the first bomber armed with a cannon instead of a machine-gun.

    gasGas
    Chlorine gas was a very deadly substance. The German army came up with the idea and first used it against the French. Yellow-green clouds came toward the French and had a smell similar to a mixture of pineapple and pepper. They thought the German were hiding behind a smokescreen, ready to attack. After they felt a burning in their chests and throats, however, they noticed they were being gassed. An hour later a four-mile gap was in the French line. Chlorine gas led its victims to a slow death, as it destroyed their respiratory organs. Unfortunately doctors could not find a cure. Certain weather conditions were needed for a gas attack as the British found out. On September 25, 1915 the wind blew gas back into the British's faces when they attempted to launch a gas attack. Later gas shells were produced which increased their range and protected them under bad weather conditions. Later, Allied forces began wearing gas masks. The masks were made of pads soaked in urine, which repelled the chlorine. Some soldiers preferred using handkerchiefs dampened with a solution of bicarbonate of soda, and later more efficient gas masks were made. Also, a stronger and more effective gas using phosgene instead of chlorine was later developed. Some armies even used a gas containing a mixture of both substances.
    synchSynchronized Guns
    At the beginning of the war two-seater planes were used. It was the job of the observer to use a revolver, rifle, or hand grenade against the enemy plane. Soon after single-seater planes were invented with machine guns on the front, Roland Garros created deflector plates to allow planes to fire through the propeller. Later, as an addition to these plates, Anthony Fokker and his team began work on a system allowing planes to have forward firing machine guns that were synchronized with the propellers. A cam was placed on the crankshaft of the engine and was in line with each propeller blade. Whenever a blade was at a position where it might be hit by the gun, the cam activated a pushrod that stopped the gun from firing. This device was placed on many German planes. This gave them a big advantage until Allied planes began using them in 1916.
