Kontrolleintragungen der V 2 Abschussdaten 1944 - 1945

Diese Daten wurden entnommen von: http://www.v2rocket.com/

weitere Infos zur V2 gibt es hier: http://www.v2platform.nl/index.html

This information was researched, collected, assembled, and translated in a cooperative venture joined by
Rudi Velthuis, Ed Straten and Tracy Dungan.
It is a working list and subject to additions and corrections. It is by no means, complete or touted to be completely

accurate. It would be almost impossible to document all (over 3000) V2 attacks.

   The information has been collected from many sources, which, include bibliography sources, local Dutch archives
   and eyewitness interviews. Much of the information we found in previous publications contained numerous errors,
       which, we attempted to sort and correct. If we were unsure of a report or source, we did not list it at this time.
This list is NOT complete.

 If you would like to contribute information or corrections, please contact us.

Also contributing are:
Charles Ostyn, who at age 18, lived in Antwerpen and experienced the V2 impacts first-hand.

Rijsterbos additions contributed by Henk Koopman of The Netherlands.

Diese Liste ist nicht vollständig. Es wäre fast unmöglich, alle V2 Abschüsse zu dokumentieren,
(es waren im Kriegsverlauf über 3000).

Diese Informationen wurden aus vielen Quellen gesammelt, Bibliographien, lokale holländische Archive
und Augenzeugeninterviews. Viele der Information, die wir in vorherigen Veröffentlichungen fanden,
enthielten zahlreiche Fehler, welche, wir versuchten, zu sortieren und zu korrigieren.
Wenn wir eines Berichts oder einer Quelle unsicher waren, listeten wir sie zu dieser Zeit nicht auf.

The end of the rocket attacks against Antwerp came on March 27, when the Batt. 444 launched a V2 from the site at Heek, near Burgsteinfurt area. In that month, Batt. 444 had been joined in these launchings by Batt. 2./485 (Art. 2./902), which was positioned nearby at the Darfeld site.

Mar. 27, (22.45 hours) - Batt. SS Abt. 500, Hellendoorn, Eelerberg, the last A4 rocket fired toward Antwerp. The rocket impacted in Mortsel, Antwerpsestraat/Lieven Gevaetstraat, causing 23 casualties, 62 injured, 29 houses destroyed. (*Charles Ostyn)

From Mar. 09 to Mar. 27 at Hellendoorn, Feuerstellung Nr. 410, Batt. SS Abt. 500 launches about 38 A4 rockets, with 3 failures. 

On Wednesday, Mar. 28, - Batt. SS Abt. 500 leaves Hellendoorn because of the Allied advance. The unit was split up into various parts that all left the launching area on different days, with different destinations. The 3./SS Abt. 500 Batterie, followed by the 1./SS Abt. 500 Batterie, and then the 2./SS Abt. 500 Batterie left the area last. Some soldiers of the Batt. SS Abt. 500 were, in the last phase of the war, were equipped with Nebel-Werfers (15 cm, Do-Werfer). They were supposed to travel to Berlin to battle against the Russians. But, the SS 500 soldiers never made it to Berlin and were scattered during the Allied advance.

Also on Wednesday, Mar. 28, Batt. 1./485 (Art. 1./902) and Batt. 2./485 (Art. 2./902) withdrew on to Fallingbostel, 23 miles north of Hanover, they arrived on April 1. One day later, the Batt. 3./485 (Art. 3./902) launched its last two rockets before it also retreated to Fallingbostel.

After the retreat from its operational area in late March 1945, the Batt. 836 Art. Rgt. 901 originally was to have gathered at BRAMSCHE (about 10 miles west of Osnabruck) for the so-called "Ziethen Undertaking". The deterioration of the military situation, however, prevented this. Instead, the "Blucher Undertaking" was ordered, in which the units were to move to Celle (about 20 miles north of Hanover). From there the remaining rockets were to be fired against the "Kustrin Fortress" (the polish Kostrzyn of today, about 60 miles northeast of Berlin). The plan fell apart because of the total breakdown in Germany. As a result, all of Gruppe Süd's equipment was destroyed in the area of Celle, to prevent capture, on April 7, 1945. SS-General Kammler had already given the order to reorganize the rocket units into infantry regiments. The war diary of the Batt. 836 Art. 901 stated on April 8, that - with all of their specialized equipment destroyed, the FR Gruppe had lost its character as an elite unit. They were now nothing more than an infantry combat group.

There is some information that seems to indicate that Battalion 444 fired additional rockets from the area around Verden in Germany as late as April 5-6. After firing from Heek on March 27, the Batt. 444 (or at least a portion of the unit) moved deeper into Germany, arriving in a place called Welmbüttel in Schlesig Holstein, northern Germany. The unit had reportedly already fired two new test series A4s from this area a few weeks earlier sometime in the first days of March at a place called Armsen (southeast of Verden an der Aller) in the direction of the northsea. Some of the soldiers of that unit had taken quarter in these villages and stayed there after the end of the war. Eyewitness reports said that on Good Friday and Easter there were no firings, but on April 5 the residents saw the first launching of a V2 from Welmbüttel in Schlesig Holstein, in the direction of the northsea. On April 6, there was a misfire resulting in a crash near one of the launch sites. Eyewitnesses report a total of five rockets fired from these areas. In the following days, all the rockets were moved away from this area and most probably destroyed by the rocket troops near Celle. These last firings are not related to operational attacks. They were only test firings, but they do give an idea of the movements of Batt. 444(*MG)

From Oct. 7 - Mar. 30, 152 V2's crashed in the Antwerp harbour killing 131 workers there.

During the last phase of the operations, the daily rate of fire for Gruppe Süd, due to the problems mentioned above, was clearly lower than that of Gruppe Nord , and amounted to an average of about four rockets per day.

Although the war was ended another accident with an A4/V2 happened in Holten (Holland). On April 30, at the crossroads of Rijssenseweg / Markeloseweg a "Bomb Disposal Lorry" drove, that carried the highly explosive top of a V2 rocket. Suddenly it exploded killing 6 people. One of the persons was sitting on the top of the rocket and nothing of him was found anymore. Near the castle De Waardenborch, there is still a monument remember this accident. 

By the end of the A4/V2 campaign about 3172 A4/V2s where launched.
