VIDEO: Libyan rebels mount, operate air-launched rocket pod on truck

Necessity is the mother of invention. This video shows Libyan rebels firing Russian/Soviet-built S-5 57mm air-launched unguided rockets from a UB-32 rocket pod mounted on a civilian pickup truck. The pods are usually carried on aircraft such as the MiG-23/27, Su-7/17/22 attack jets and Mi-24 helicopters. Here is a more conventional way of mounting the rocket pods.
