Moments later, John heard the planes as they started taxiing down the runway to a take off position. The Chinese on the trucks coming up the main road, must have heard them too, because the column started to speed up. When they were less than a hundred yards from the airfield's access road, Johnson gave the order to fire, and his Nungs hit the first four trucks with LAWs. All three of them stopped dead in the roadway when the anti tank rounds hit their engine compartments and exploded, throwing shapnel and metal from the engine everywhere. When they stopped, the rest of the convoy ground to a halt behind them, and Chinese troops started spilling off them seeking cover. Then a gas tank blew, illuminating the entire column and high lighting anyone still standing on the road. John didn’t have to give the order to fire, the rest of his Nungs lit up everybody as soon as they spotted them. Soon, green tracers were flying everywhere as they opened up the Chinese battalion in front of them, knocking down those still on the road like bowling pins. Then one of the Nungs Johnson had borrowed from B Company unloaded on the stalled convoy with his RPD machine gun and the shit really hit the fan. They were in a fight for their lives and they knew it,because there was nowhere to run.
