Details

This pack contains two Fiesler Fi-103 (also known as the manned V-1) flying bombs. This was a manned version of the German V-I flying bomb. It was a suicide craft similar to the Japanese Ohka rockets. A special suicide squadron was set up, the Leonidas Squadron, part of KG200. Two different types of flying bombs were proposed, the Fi-103 and Me328. The Me328 was selected to be used but suffered from development problems. The Fi-103 however held some slight hope of survival for a pilot with a parachute and was used instead. The squadron was set up but was then disbanded in late 1944 / early 1945.
