  1. can't get the code to work for me either..
  2. Got a question: Which navy used rocket armed aircraft on CV's? I know the US Army Air Corps used rocket equiped Mustangs, Lightnings and Thunderbolts to attack trains, armor, and other ground targets, but none of the afore mentioned target types were as armored as ships were. the 1/2 inch top armor on a Sherman or Panzer is nothing compaired to like say the almost 3 feet of armor on a late war battleship turret. how is a rocket that is ment to do damage to up to 1 inch of armor, do much of, if anything, to multiple inches, if not multiple feet of armor thickness? Ok after looking some thing up, I found 4 types of rockets used mainly by US forces and somewhat by British forces, the 3.5 inch FFAR, the 5 inch FFAR, the GP HVAR, and the AP HVAR, and of all these you had to be within 1000-1500m to hit anything with them, and only the very late war AP HVAR had a penatration abliity of over 1 inch, it had a 2-3 inch penatration depending on angle of impact. There was mention of use agianst Submarines, and mention of a sinking, but, I think they were talking about unarmored merchant vessels. Once agian, I ask, how is something with so low a penatration, and so low a explosive warhead, supposed to do anything to an armored warship?
