LUFTWAFFE SPECIAL WEAPONS 1942-45
Examines the many different types of weapons that comprised the Luftwaffe's increasingly potent arsenal during the second half of the war -- aerial torpedoes, wire-guided rockets and missiles, batteries fired by photo-electric cells, chemical weapons, composite bombers, and air-launched flying bombs. As the course of World War II turned against the Third Reich, some of the most inventive and radical proposals and designs were put forward by armaments manufacturers, scientists, technicians, aircrew, and private individuals to the Reichsluftministerium (German Air Ministry) for consideration. Some proposals were destined never to leave the drawing board, while others underwent trials, and were produced, issued to operational units, and used in action1 vol, 272 pgs 2021 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING
