Hello

A quick question,

Some time ago i though i read somewhere that vergeltungswaffen like te V1 where subordinated by Heeres units and not Luftwaffe, Is this correct or wrong?

I'm no expert in this matter

best regards

Hi Tom

Try to search for "Flakregiment 155 (W)" a Luftwaffe unit - in this section of AHF.

viewtopic.php?f=50&t=93265&hilit=Flakregiment+155

That is the unit responsable for the V1 operations, V2 and V3 were under SS command.

And the V3 supercanon:
