Bomb

 

(1) An archaic name for an artillery projectile. In smoothbore artillery the term “bomb” or “grenade” refers to a projectile consisting of a spherical, hollow, castiron body, a black powder charge, and a wooden tube with a compressed powder compound. The bomb charge would explode after the time train was ignited. From the 19th century in Russian artillery, projectiles with a mass of more than 1 pood (16 kg) were called bombs. This term was kept for high explosive shells in rifled artillery of calibers of 122 mm and higher. In the beginning of the 1930’s the term “bomb” was dropped from artillery terminology.

(2) Aerial bombs, one of the types of aviation ammunition.

(3) A projectile for destroying submarines underwater.

What does it mean when you dream about a bomb?

A bomb is quite an attention-getter if it goes off in a dream. Perhaps a situation is becoming too explosive and the dreamer needs to tread carefully to avoid “land mines.” Alternatively, perhaps the dreamer is so tightly wound because of some situation that he or she feels ready to explode.
