Bombs??

Postby Sturm78 » 23 Mar 2009 12:15

Hi all,

Does someone knows what are the things that are on trailers to be loaded into a He111? I believe that they are not bombs but......perhaps mines or ???

Not bombs but i think they are containers with supplies (Versorgungsbehälter or Versorgungsbomben).

These looks very similar and are Versorgungsbomben.

Mit dem Einschluss der 6. Armee in Stalingrad versichert Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, Oberbefehlshaber der Luftwaffe, knapp 300.000 Mann aus der Luft zu versorgen zu können. Nie wurde der errechnete Mindestbedarf für die Truppe erreicht. Als die Anflüge immer gefährlicher wurden und der Verlust an Mensch und Maschine dramatische Ausmaße annahm, wurden diese Versorgungsbomben über dem Kessel abgeworfen, die ein Überleben ermöglichen sollten.

Hi Ome Joop,

I think you are right, Versorgungsbomben-Supply bombs . In this link there is some information but I do not understand the German :cry: :http://www.luftarchiv.de/ You see Misc. Equipment and then Drop Tanks sections.

translated...With the inclusion of 6. Army in Stalingrad insured Reich Marshall Hermann Göring to provide Commander-in-Chief of the air force, nearly 300,000 man from the air. Never reached the calculated Mindestbedarf the force. As the Anflüge were always dangerous and the loss of human and machine took dramatic proportions, this supply bombs over the bowl should allow a survival were dropped.using this translatorhttp://www.microsofttranslator.com/Default.aspx

At first sight they seem bombs, but those handles are strange. Just behind the men it seems that the top is up so they might be containers. Could be clusters?
