Last night I spent too much time watching some military weapon's video footage on YouTube.
As I fell asleep, a weapon's silhouette showed up in my dream, with a voice came from nowhere, read a poem sound like this:

A birthmark I have, like a letter in capital.

A war boy I am, yet friends regard me as a girl.

Interested in music, though I'm playing it poorly.

On an iron stave with all the notes, a symphony has made proudly.

When the concert begun, the notes were flying away.

As the dull sound went on, the evil had faded away.


What am I?

It has to be the infamous

Katyusha

A birthmark I have, like a letter in capital.

They were branded with the letter K

A war boy I am, yet friends regard me as a girl.

It's a weapon of war nicknamed using a female name (Yekaterina →Katya →Katyusha)

Interested in music, though I'm playing it poorly.

When fired it would produce an awful type of "music"

On an iron stave with all the notes, a symphony has made proudly.

The "notes" are the individual rockets while the iron stave is the rack which holds them

When the concert begun, the notes were flying away.

When it starts firing the rockets fly out in quick succession

As the dull sound went on, the evil had faded away.

Explanation from OP:

Though the poor accuracy it had, but katyusha's rockets were effective in carpet bombing, along with the howling sound, which was feared by the German soldiers.

  • $\begingroup$ No, it is a thing, not a person. Though they share the same nationality. $\endgroup$ – Shane Hsu Sep 30 '16 at 5:51
  • $\begingroup$ Is it something that requires specific knowledge or more general? $\endgroup$ – shree.pat18 Sep 30 '16 at 5:53
  • $\begingroup$ Well, it is a weapon, to be specific. $\endgroup$ – Shane Hsu Sep 30 '16 at 6:09
