General Note / OCR

Armed Helicopter Briefing 16mm film from the Training Aids Division at Fort Rucker, Alabama. Demonstration of several helicopter-borne weapon systems. The reel begins with an H-13 Sioux popping up from behind the tree line to fire its machine gun. Next we see 2.75' Mighty Mouse FFARs (Folding-Fin Aerial Rockets) being loaded into an XM-3 sub-system launcher. Then an H-21 Shawnee making a 'rocket run.' At 2:46 we see a UH-1B armed with AGM-22 air-to-ground missiles. The AGM-22 was a wire-guided anti-armor missile from Aerospatiale. At 5:05, a C-7 Caribou rendezvous with a UH-1 to demonstrate rapid transport of casualties.
