Title:DEMONSTRATION ROCKET ATTACK (BY TYPHOONS) ON A CAPTURED TANK [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ACB 82
Description: Film (ground to air) of rocket-firing Typhoons in flight. Two Typhoons peel off - film of smoke rising from an exploding rocket. A Typhoon flies past (air to air). A rocket explodes near a tank, (a German Panther). Two more rockets explode near the tank, which bursts into flames (no direct hit is shown, however). Close-ups of the Panther reveal that it has no tracks and has been badly damaged anyway. A few airmen stand by to watch the blaze.
