Flat Trajectory Projectile.

An unguided projectile achieves a flat trajectory by generating gravity-countering aerodynamic lift. The lifting device is stabilized in roll by a displacement-type gyroscope which is mounted directly to the lifting section of the projectile. Both the lifting device and the gryroscope are mounted on bearings to permit free rotation of the projectile body relative to the roll-stabilized lifting section. Lift vector orientation is maintained irrespective of projectile roll. Author
