There are 3 rockets built on each wing. The power of each rocket was comparable with heavy gunnery of the battleships. Size: 3 ft L x 5 in diameter

The wingman of sgt 'Boebi' Haye told a story about how Haye didn’t listen to instructions to never turn the plane over when loaded with rockets. In one case, he overshot his target, so flipped (Immelmann maneuver) and circled back hit his target. He got lucky that the rockets did not fall off. This was a story that they were not allowed to share.
