Note standard aerial depth charge under the other wing. There is no indication these rockets had rocket motors so the thinking was apparently that the bombs would be powered by gravity alone. There is also no indication there were any airborne tests of this concept or that these weapons were mounted to scout aircraft more than this one time.
