I think they must have been using captured German technology...

Those were the early V2 experiments. Everything made by the Germans is usually over engineered and works quite well. For example the M1A1 Abrams Tank was a joint effort by the Americans and Germans,...We didn't even want the french close to that one. What is truly amazing the smartest scientist in the world, were chased out of Germany, thank God for that.

Sent to me by my favorite Marine Colonel:

That is a 'short round' and is scary as hell. I was very familiar with the old 3.5 rocket launchers (bazookas) from the Korean Era, but know noting of the new tank killers -- except that they are vastly superior.

With the 3.5, and also the mortar, the round was only armed when it achieved an acceleration of so many feet per second.
