History[edit | edit source]

Showa era[edit | edit source]

Rodan[edit | edit source]

After the two Rodans destroyed the city of Fukuoka, it was discovered that they were hiding inside the crater of Mount Aso. The JSDF sent several tanks and Honest John launchers to the crater. Their assault soon caused the volcano to erupt and forced the winged beasts to take to the air. But the toxic fumes of the eruption soon overcame then, and they fell into the lava flow, where the flames consumed them.

The Mysterians[edit | edit source]

To be added.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The real JSDF never fielded Honest John rockets, and their presence in these films goes unexplained. Presumably, they are on loan from the United States, called in due to the extraordinary circumstances.
  • Though capable of carrying nuclear warheads, Honest Johns are outfitted exclusively with conventional payloads in these films.
