B, MK fuse 35.
The Hydra 70 rocket is a weapon derived from the 70 mm (2.75 inch) Mk 4/Mk 40 Folding-Fin Aerial Rocket developed by the United States Navy for use as a free-flight aerial rocket in the late 1940s.
That type of weapon is called air to air missiles and is used by the U.S. Army in dogfights because its more effective than machine guns or cannons for combat in the aircraft of the U.S. Air Force.
It was reported that the subject in his first statement said that he intended to sell it.
