Consolidated Catalina IIIA

Consolidated PB4Y-2M Privateer

Seen during the credits, this Consolidated PB4Y-2M Privateer dropping a ASM-N-2 (a radar-guided glide bomb). This very short archive footage is a wrong use of historical material as the bomb was combat proven in April 1945 and only in the Pacific theater !
The Privateer itself was on front line units not before the end of 1944.

ASM-N-2 Bat.
