Synopsis for "The Flying Tank Platoon"

The Blackhawk Squadron is sent to Weisbaden, West Germany, by OSS. They encounter Soviet Flying Tanks, then Soviet interceptors, aerial combat ensues. The flying tanks land and they escape the area undetected. Blackhawk warns a conference of senior military officers about the new weapons, and during this meeting a platoon of flying tanks arrives to attack the airbase. They overrun the base and capture most of the garrison, but soon the Blackhawks have led an escape and a flanking movement, and the base is recaptured in a wide, freewheeling fistfight. The Reds capture all of the generals attending the conference, but some of the soldiers capture two of the flying tanks. Six tanks fly away, with U.S. generals inside them, and Blackhawk fighters clinging to their undercarriages. Blackhawk half-accidentally flips over one flying tank, causing the crew to abandon it. He then climbs aboard the tank, while it automatically rights itself and resumes course, eastward into enemy territory. Blackhawk gets control of the tank and yells some directions to Hendrickson about how to do the same. Soon the tide turns, and by the end of the aerial battle, eight Red Flying Tanks have been captured and flown to Weisbaden for study.
