Spezialfahrzeuge 1: Peenemünde 1942-45. V2 rocket book. Delayed until May/June 2023
This V2 rocket book covers the various vehicles for fire control, supply, testing, fuel, trailers such as the ‘Meillerwagen’ and ‘Vidalwagen’, trailers for liquids, gantry cranes and rail cars, including the launching railroad wagon. All vehicle types are shown; photographs, detailed drawings, designs and technical specifications based on historical documentation, production rate and deployment of the Division z.V. are part of this documentation.
At 384 pages, hardcover in landscape format, text in English and German, with more than 250 rare and unpublished photographs of these unique vehicles and devices. Additionally, copies of rare original documents and a set of detailed 1/35 scale drawings will give historical (technical) researchers and scale modellers a tremendous new source of valuable information.
This first part looks at the design and production. Part 2 will look at training and deployment.
Publication of this book has been postponed once again. The publisher tells me May or June 2023.
