Debut Of The Sherman Tank Mounted With Rockets, In Action

Uploaded to MindsiMedia You Tube  on Feb 3, 2013
As a child I was fascinated with tanks, machine guns, flamethrowers and other exotic weapons of war. I was trolling the Library of Congress for interesting videos when I came across a public domain newsreel that promised a Sherman tank firing rockets. It gave me an immediate flashback to those days at the library so I had to check it out and it was pretty cool. It was the first time the weapon was shown to the press. They show how they are loaded as well as the blast off as it launches sixty 4 1/2" rockets. That is one bad ass tank and I don't usually use that word.
