Late model IL2 or an IL10.

WIthout pulling up the game, I can't tell if that's a M-13, ROFS....something, or a RS-132...

I think it's an M-13 rocket though.

FoolTrottel got it!

Good Job!

Panzerwerfer 42

I am dissapointed.
I was hoping it would take a much longer time before somebody figured it out.

This is'nt over.

I will be back with more.

huh, interesting. Did they use the same model? Cause I could swear that looks like one of the rockets for the IL-10....

my first thought was the Russian Anti tank rocket mounted on IL2's and IL10's.

must be because they used same model

Well, it's a screenshot I made while playing (or maybe beta testing) Bogustogus' excellent The legend of Y-29 (http://mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=1643) campaign... a few years ago... and I just remembered the projectile in that screenshot... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Looks like the M-13 mounted on IL2's

But it's not.

Panzerwerfer 42 has its own model for rockets.

Here's some pics of a 40 model I think being re-loaded.

Seriously though, it would'nt suprize me if the Germans had something like this on the drawing board in WW2. Put folding fins on a V2 and put it trough a launch tube from a bigarse U-boat.

Sure, that would be the full size and then some submarine aircraft carrier with 300 plane capacity.
Of course they were the first to have the compressed gas launch system to get the missile over the water before ignition
and it was just copied by the Polaris engineers with help from von Braun....

They did.

"As it developed, the plan was to send three 500 ton displacement containers towed by a single snorkel equipped submarine. Each container, trimmed to neutral buoyancy, concealed a V2. Upon reaching the start location, the containers would be trimmed to a vertical position, and the rockets launched. "

Didn't V-2 use LOX for oxydizer? And didn't they need a highly specialized, not cookbook, team to launch reliably?

IMO they might have gotten away with firing V-1's from surfaced submarines. Those had good enough range didn't they?
30 miles off shore at night, there would be plenty time to run. Could they home in on a radio station?

Indeed, but I would suggest by that stage of the war they were willing to entertain some pretty outlandish propositions.

The V2 missile could be fueled only in the vertical position. The fuel tanks were not engineered to handle the weight of the fuel when horizontal.

Working from memory, the Americans copied the V1 as the 'Loon' and one of their schemes (IIRC) was to launch them from a Submarine. The later Regulus was so launched.

I seem to recall (possibly incorrectly, I wasn't focusing on US cruise missile development at the time), that the Loon was successfully launched from submarines, but that it was deemed insufficiently advanced to warrant the degredation in performance that would have accompanied the equipment needed. There were a few Regulus boats, but even the SSGKs weren't fully developed with the refinement of von Karman's solid fuel tech to allow for the launching of ballistic missiles from submarines.

Speaking of tests that the navy did, look up the Operation Sandy launch. :P
