ABOUT VERGELTUNGSWAFFEN.NLFrom 1944 to April 1945, the German occupiers launched 8,000 Vergeltungswaffen in the Netherlands at targets far behind the allied lines such as London and Antwerp. Many of the launched V.1s and V.2s did not reach their goal but came to the Netherlands prematurely. This website shows around 2200 locations in the Netherlands where a V.1 or V.2 has landed (prematurely) and explodes in many cases and offers further background information about these weapons in the last years of the war. In 2010 there is a list of V.1 and V.2 impacts in the Netherlands compiled based on data from Thierry van den Berg and Henk Koopman. The complete list was published in parts between 2010-2014 in the Bulletin of Study Group Air War 1939-1945.
The V.1 (Vergeltungswaffe 1) was an unmanned jet aircraft that was used by the German Luftwaffe as a flying bomb. The Fieseler Fi 103 - named after the German aircraft manufacturer of the weapon - or FZG-76 - FZG after Flakzielgerät or anti-aircraft target device, had a length of 7.9 meters and a wingspan of 5.3 meters. The V.1 was able to reach a maximum speed of 656 km / h and had a range of 240 to 400 kilometers. A V.1 weighed 2180 kilograms and had a springhead of 850 kilograms. The engine of the V.1 ran on normal kerosene. The V.1 guidance system was very simple and consisted of an automatic pilot linked to a gyro compass. This control unit only controlled the height and speed. The distance to the target was only roughly estimated - accuracy was not required - and a propeller driven in the nose determined when this distance was reached. Before the launch, the counter was set so that it was above the estimated target at 0. With the set counter, only a launch rail pointing to the west (or south) was needed; the automatic setting did the rest. From 13 June 1944, a week after the Allied landing in Normandy, a total of more than 9,000 V1s were launched to targets in England, Belgium and France. the automatic setting did the rest.
