Doodlebugs V Tiny Tim

1944 the V1blitz on London What seemed a likely strategy for dealing with the V1menace was unable to go into effect because the US Army and US Marine Good old fashioned inter service rivalry…………….

General Marshall

Project Danny……. A plan to deploy F4u Corsairs of the US Marines armed with an advanced weapon Tiny Tim a air-to-ground rocket Flying at over 880 km/h was accurate to a mile and very effective for bunker-busting abilities…… like the well dug-in V1 bases

Although it makes little differance to your comments, in actual fact the V1 firing points were often in the open with facilities to moove it elsewhere at very short notice. lcm1

I remember being on leave on one occasion and the warning had gone,I was standing on the corner of the street looking down across the valley leading slightly N/E towards the country town of Lewes and flying below my eye level a few 100 yards between were two 'doodle bugs'. I assume they were originally aimed at London but at their present direction would miss and at the altitude they were at would probably never make it anyway.IMO the biggest nightmare if they had come earlier would have been without doubt the V2s. lcm1

I remember as a kid one V2 that landed about 1/2 mile away.......a sunny day ,then a loud noise and the world exploded.......large boom and big cloud of dust,smoke......later on all us kids went up to see....massive big hole and all the surrounding houses were wrecked.......got told later a lot of people were killed........When I was a lot older (years) I read a book on how us guys who lived through The Blitz actually had more combat time than some front line soldiers......thats my excuse for being weird.......so what did I do when I was older...became a full time soldier/airman.....
