Default spiral tracers?

is there any ecentric german bullets?

maybe the spiral cannons?

theyre banned by geneva for being too mean but maybe you could expect that from nazis

in an eccentric bullet 100% of bullet energy goes to foes plane

In my experience eccentric things mainly just piss themselves and drain your resources by refusing to go into a home.

Back in those days, they where testing solar powered rail guns to take advantage of the sun light casting over the plane wings.
The idea was latter shelved as the wind speed would tear the solar panels from the wings.
After that, plasma guns where attempted being powered by a wind turbine fed by the plane speed on steep dives. This was also shelved due to the tendency of the plasma to jump to the plane propeller hence burning the electronic ignition system.

These two top secret trials are not recorded in history as they where too eccentric to be true.

It's okay, I got this, I'm almost fluent in raaaid.

No, dum-dum or tumbling (eccentric) bullets are no use against metal targets.

To answer the question..

Tumbling (eccentric) bullets would be next to useless fired from an aircraft, they have an extremely short range and are prone to going where they want, not where you fired them.

They are designed for killing people not planes.

They also have nothing to do with spiral tracer smoke.
