Falklands - Argentine improvised weapon at Goose Green
This is a quick post of a picture that found of an Argentine improvised weapon that was located at Goose Green. I had forgotten about it until I was looking up a picture of the Top Malo house for Tony at “Card Models by Tony” (Link) and I relocated it. I find this amazing myself and will have to scratch build it for my 20mm Argentine conscripts to try (that would be the key word!) to use it against the 2 Para.
The weapon is a 2.75” rocket pod from a Pucara strike aircraft tied down to a wooden crate. The crate is mounted on top of children’s slide in the settlement. The weapon was to be aimed by using the step ladder that is seen in the picture and then to be fired by an electrical charge that was connected to a car battery!
