This innovation of the first bomber lead to more advanced aircrafts that were seen later on in the world wars such as the Hanley Page Bomber, and the Voison Bomber. Another major technology that was developed during the World War I was the Armored tank that was made out of Steel. It took around two years for Colonel Earnest Swinton who...
