V1 (Fieseler Fi 103)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Die Fieseler Fi 103 war der erste militärisch eingesetzte Marschflugkörper. Sie wurde als eine der „Wunderwaffen“ in der NS-Propaganda des Zweiten Weltkriegs auch V1 (Vergeltungswaffe) genannt. Die Entwicklung der Gerhard-Fieseler-Werke in Kassel trug den Tarnnamen FZG 76 (Flakzielgerät) und war im Frühjahr 1944 einsatzbereit. Von Juni 1944 bis März 1945 wurden ca. 12.000 Fi 103 von der Wehrmacht hauptsächlich gegen Ziele in England (London) und Belgien (Hafen von Antwerpen) eingesetzt.

Das im Auftrag des Reichsluftfahrtministeriums ab Mitte 1942 entwickelte „Ferngeschoß in Flugzeugform“ war mit fast einer Tonne Sprengstoff bestückt und wurde daher umgangssprachlich auch „Flügelbombe“ genannt.
