Report regarding trials of napalm effects against tanks

A report dated 1954-01-16 regarding trials with napalm against tanks, conducted in November and December of 1952. The report covers a number of practical tests done, some with rabbits placed inside the tank, and concludes that while napalm is mostly harmless against tanks (provided that the air intakes are undamaged and that there are no oil or fuel leaks), the psychological effect is probably significant. The report also contains a draft of a brief crew instruction sheet on what to do in case of napalm.
