This week, Dan has a look at the Marine Rocket Launcher Battery, manned by the USMC's Buck Rogers Men.
From the book, Gung-Ho!:"The 1944 campaign to recapture Saipan and Tinian saw the introduction of the truck-mounted 4.5 inch Mk 7 mulitple rocket launcher. Due to the futuristic nature of the rocket trucks the crews were named "Buck Rogers' Men" by the Marine Riflemen. The weight of fire that could be dropped on concentrated Japanese troops or field positions out-weighed their inaccuracy."
Let's have a look at what's inside the box!
