210567_YRC2_007

This is an original 1945 color cover for Radio Craft and Popular Electronics magazine. Please note this is only the cover. This cover illustrates Alex Schomburg's (the artist) idea of future bombing practices with long-trajectory flying torpedoes directed by radio. Such bombs could be released a safe distance away from the target, then guided to their objectives with the precision of a "Kamikaze" suicide bomber.
