AFAIK B-25 units did not use the "bazookas" neither in CBI nor in other theaters. There were experiments only:It seems that the rockets launched by tubes were very popular in the CBI, used on P-40, B-25, and A-36A.
I beleive they tried those rockets on a B-24, too.
Goofy setup, the tubes were mounted on either side of the fuselage (like gun-packs on a B-25).
Gosh, I hope so. Those are gold.In the 1970s, our senior CAP sq was treated with a B&W movie taken of the AVGs remaining P-40 Tomahawks using the rocket tubes, 3 per wing, strafing practice targets. Our guest was an AVG member and these were his movies. I have always wondered if the movies have survived.
Since the RAF in the MTO used six A-36As, and removed the nose guns, had this been one of them in this photo, from the same perspective, two other unique features of the A-36A stand out. Since you cannot see the serial number, nor the dive brakes, the two features particular to the A-36A Mustang were the wide lens in the left wing’s landing/taxi lights (2 lights behind that lens) and the spear-like pitot probe protruding from the leading edge of the right wing (all other Mustangs had an”L-shaped” one protruding from the underside of the right wing).
