The bolt-action rifle was the main weapon used by soldiers in the trenches. It could fire up to 15 rounds in one minute, and a person 1,400 meters away could be killed.
At first planes during WWI were used to deliver bombs, and to spy on the enemy. But they soon became fighter aircraft's armed with machine guns,
bombs, and sometimes cannons.
