  • Description

    Some of the latest NATO weapons were demonstrated at the Grafenwoehr training area in Germany on Feb. 5th.

    Exercise "Wintershield" opened as "enemy" positions were filmed by remote-controlled aircraft, and then the attack was launched. Strafing by armed helicopters was followed by landing of heliborne troops, and then the tanks came into action.

    Next...a heavier weapon -- the "Honest John" missile. Enemy tanks were repelled by anti-tank missiles fired from Jeeps, and then...more air support, as fighter bombers roared overhead dropping napalm bombs.

    West German Minister of Defense, Herr Strauss, watched the Demonstration accompanied by senior NATO officers.
