Building with Hole in the Roof
NICE SHOT: SEE THE 2.75 ROUND ROCKET HOLE IN THE ROOF. Here is how to shoot rockets? Altitude is best at 1,500 feet over the ground. Why 1,500 feet? Because you can still hit the target and your aircraft is difficult to hit by small arms ground fire. Use the bombsight on the hood of the airplane. See the above picture of the sight? Use a heading that is into the wind. Pull up the nose of the airplane and then gently drop the nose of the airplane so the circle of the bomb site is over the target. Do not use any rudder pedal—left or right. If the airplane has any yaw, the rocket will NOT go straight. When the target is in the circle—pull the trigger on the stick. The trigger pull should be a smooth and perfect squeeze. Remember the wind will affect the flight path of the rocket. Tot Lam in Vietnamese means a good job!
