Tommorow night at 9 there is a show on called "Hitlers Vengence Weapons" it is about the V1 and V2.....should be good
I agree, they werent very accurate weapons and they werent extremely effective at killing but they scared the public, alot. The public knew that at any time a bomb could fall out of the sky and knock out a city block.Originally posted by graylensman
Sandman... I've had those pages marked for a long time. They're great! Through the Astronautica page, i found another Nazi project that called for the construction of a space station with a giant orbital mirror. The mirror would focus the rays of the sun onto the earth, and set fire to all those cities who stood opposed to the Third Reich. No really, it's true...
Ryan quoted the HC: >the weapons caused immense civilian casualties<
According to what i've read, especially on the V2rocket.com site, the V2 caused more deaths amongst the slaves pressed into service to build the rockets, than amongst the civilian targets themselves. It was certainly more fear-inducing, though: it came in at supersonic velocities, so one would have no warning of an imminent attack.
The stuff I was reading about what went on in Mittelwerk is horrible. Its enough to make your eye-balls itch.Originally posted by graylensman
