This is coolbert:
Again from a comment to the blog by Steiner:
"Finally, the whole V1/V2 narrative has been completely distorted by post-war commentators with an agenda other than historical accuracy. “V” stands for Vergeltung, “revenge”, these were psychological weapons first and foremost, a means, however insignificant, for Germany to strike back at the Allies after, for example, the conventional bombing of Great Britain had ceased years before while the round-the-clock pounding of the Reich continued and intensified."
Add also to that V1 and V2 missile vengeance weaponry the V-3. The long-range super-gun the purpose of which was strictly to bombard London with a barrage of big-bore artillery rounds.
Destroyed and placed hors de combat even before the first shot fired in retaliation on the English capital city.
"The V-3 (Vergeltungswaffe 3) was a German World War II supergun working on the multi-charge principle whereby secondary propellant charges are fired to add velocity to a projectile."
"The weapon was planned to be used to bombard London from two large bunkers in the Pas-de-Calais region of northern France, but they were rendered unusable by Allied bombing raids before completion."
"The project intended to use two batteries to crush London under a barrage of hundreds of shells per hour, shells of 140 kilograms (310 lb) with an explosive charge of 25 kilograms (55 lb)."
"The guns would not be movable, and would be permanently aimed at London."
"The plans were to have the first battery of five gun tubes ready for March 1944, and the full complex of 25 gun tubes by 1 October 1944 . . .The site was finally put out of commission on 6 July 1944, when bombers of RAF Bomber Command's 617 Squadron attacked using 5,400-kilogram (12,000 lb) 'Tallboy' deep-penetration bombs."
Those V-3 destroyed and hors de combat but not entirely so! A second set of such guns placed into operation and actually employed in combat that city of Luxembourg subjected to bombardment! This I was not aware of.
"Two similar guns were used to bombard Luxembourg from December 1944 to February 1945."
And Steiner is correct. The military value of these Vee weaponry negligible the psychological value paramount BUT again valuable resources wasted in the process.
