    RP3 historically identified

    With very high accuracy based on the historical records research of the No.19 sqn SAAF actions over Bosnia and Herzegovina I can say that today we destroyed RP3 rocket fired in the attack of the No16 sqn SAAF recorded on this video:

    Rocket is destroyed near Bihać where No. 16 sqn attacked German positions in September 1944. So if video capitation is correct this warhead originates from this attack.

    Thanks, Bob!

    I just sow that I wrote both No 16 and No 19 sqdns in first thread. Actual rocket is from No 19 sqdn. attack, but No 16. sqdn (also on Beaufighters) attacked town Bosanska Krupa some 30 km to the north few weeks later.
