Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A wonder weapon is any very advanced form of weaponry whose design, production or deployment in the field of battle is impractical or ill-timed. Such weapons are radical departures from, or improvements of, the arms or machinery used at the time and are often intended to turn the tide of a current conflict. These weapons are either never completed, or are introduced near the end of hostilities in limited capacity so the expectations far exceed the results.The term is a calque of the German word Wunderwaffen, which was coined during World War II. Amongst Germans, it was abbreviated into "Wuwa" /vu va/, which belittled these projectThe secrecy surrounding the development of new weapons sometimes conflicts with the weapon developers' hype of new products, resulting in common advancements being mislabelled as wonder weapons.
