Aircraft R-322 at Padang in December 1948. The R-322 was one of the first aircraft of B-Flight equipped with hand grenade-racks. Each rack could carry twelve grenades of 0.68 kg each, which lined up neatly in the slipstream during flight. The grenades could be discharged from the front cockpit by pulling cords. (Photo provided by author Dr. P.C. Boer)
