the Typ 3 Mk27 rockets of the A6M5c and A6M7s..

i know they are Air to Air rockets, but anyway , i tried them at groundtargets. if they could help the japanese in late war missions for groundattack.

i tried:
-M4 Tanks, no effect
-M5 tanks, no effect
- US trucks, no effect !!!!!!

ok, no antiarmour effect - sad bud ok.
but no effect at Trucks ?? Weird !!

any other experience in use of these weapons ?

Yes, they should lite them up... It's silly that they flame up a B29 nicely, but can't scratch a car...

Almost as bad as straffing wooden fishing boats with a Beaufighter and not even scratching them.

How do you use it? Aim to direct hit, or spread out the incendiary over the target?
