Tuesday knocked out one antiaircraft missile site and damaged another in North Viet Nam Three F105 fighterbombers were shot down the Pentagon reported by what was described as intense conventional ground fire during the lowlevel at tack on two previously undis covered surfacetoair missile sites about 40 miles northwest of Hanoi The two sites using semimo bile equipment which could be put in place in as little as 24 hours are in addition to five sites previously identified as un der construction around Hanoi the North Vietnamese capital The US attack was launched three days after a US plane was shot down by fire from one of the missile sites Asst Secretary of Defense Ar thur Sylvester told a news con ference that US pilots report ed destruction of one of the new sites and damage to the other Photographic evaluation of the strike results has not been com pleted Sylvester said There were no reports of missiles fired at the attacking planes or of hostile air action the announcement said The strike aircraft were pro tected by an unspecified num ber of fighter planes which flew overhead on guard against MID fighters which apparently did not challenge the attack Officials said conventional ordnance was used in the at tack They did not specify but delayed action bombs were probably used a practice cus tomary in low level attacks Sylvester said the new sites were identified by thorough analysis of all of the evidence including photography after a loss of an Air Force F4C on the night of July 24 Until now the Defense De partment had stood on a state ment that it was investigating the reports that the F4C had been downed by a missile simi lar to those which the Russians emplaced in Cuba Pilot reports had indicated that the plane may have been downed by a SAM surfaceto air missile Sylvester said The aircraft was out of range of the original five sites which encircle Hanoi but was within range of what proved to he two new sites ft was concluded that the F4C was shot down by a SAM missile from one of the two new sites attacked today Thus the announcement add ed it was decided to destroy Hie two semimobile sites which were protecting areas in which priority military targets lie These targets Sylvester said include ammunition and supply depots barracks lines of com munication and other facilities which support the infiltration of men and material from North Viet Nam into South Viet Nam He said the five original anti aircraft missile sites are not operational so far as we know Several weeks ago the State Department spoke of four sites and said they protected both Hanoi and Haiphong North Viet Nams main port about 55 miles east of the capital city The map and the announce ment were the first public offi cial disclosure thai there were five original sites and that they were clustered around Hanoi but not Haiphong The Pentagon said that pilots on the attack missions reported seeing two parachutes after the three US planes were hit to day by ground fire Sylvester said there was no report of the extent of casual ties inflicted upon the North Vietnamese He said we presume that the missiles are North Vietnam ese but that US officials dont really know The missiles and their equip ment are Soviet built It has been presumed that as in Cuba Russian technicians and pos sibly Russian soldiers were ac tive in installing and possibly are manning the weapons US authorities have said pri vately that the possible pres ence oE Russians would not de ter the United States from at tack on such sites if it were deemed necessary Cabinet called
