barrage balloon | engleski leksikon

1. barrage balloon


An elongated tethered balloon or blimp with cables or net suspended from it to deter low-flying enemy planes.
Captive balloons, of tear-drop shape and with fins to keep them headed into the wind, which can be positioned around likely bombing targets to interfere with the probable flight paths of enemy aircraft.
Their prime function is to force enemy aircraft to stay high to avoid the balloons, so placing them at the optimum height for engagement by antiaircraft guns.
