Just chin wagging Sean. :)
I think the planes were overall a big failure.

Oh Simon, a one sentence  article for the 15mm?
Could start a range of mini articles .

e.g
Title=The effect of the Russian PTRD and PTRS AT rifles against German armour in 1944
Content= "not much"
End


e.g.
Title= The new style large hatch sliding cover on the Crusader tank.
Content = "Good idea but terrible rubbish in use"
End

I think, when talking about debatable aircraft (?) you need to add the piloted version of the V1 in there. Everything an oka was plus a pulse engine near the top of your head & very explosive liquid fuel behind you.....and if I recall there is no way the canopy opens...unless you land it.

There is museum close by in Washington state... flying heritage who are notable for where they acquired  aircraft & armour from....  an fw 190 A from a swamp in russia (shot down by aa & in spectacular shape when found in the 90ís...there is. A youtube video of it being found) a sturmovik pieced together from 4 wrecks rebuilt at the original factory...several workers, then kids, had signed one plane originally...were still ta the factory...     and the modified V1 with the cockpit..... recovered out of nordhausen by locals who found a way in long after the entrances were dynamited.... and it was rebuilt.

I think the piloted V1 was a test plane to develop the V1 rather than a combat idea..
The film "operation crossbow" shows it really well. 1965 good stuff! :)
