Summary
In this episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, viewers are taken to a deserted area in North Carolina to see what happens when an aggressor attacks our forces. Some of the modern muscle used to thwart attacks includes the 280 mm cannon, the Honest John artillery rocket, and the Corporal, a long-range guided missile. Viewers of this program from the National Archives and Records Administration get a first hand look at exactly how these weapons are employed on the battlefield.
