A little more on innovative non-gun rear-facing aircraft armament

Erik and EngeĀ“s work on the Pe-2 with rear-facing (and shooting!) rockets will be interesting to try in practice! Here are some photos and drawings of the real installation:

Pe-2_rear_rockets Pe-2_rear_rockets_2 Pe-2_rear_rockets_3 Pe-2_rear_rockets_4 Pe-2_rear_rockets_draw_1 Pe-2_rear_rockets_draw_2


I find this installation fascinating and some of the mountings above (including the ventral one) could apparently be rotated and aimed!

So, will this be next?? A flamethrowing Ju 88!!
