special Würzburg version?

Post by Tank144 » 13 Jan 2022 13:19

Hi all,

on the site http://www.v2rocket.com/start/deploymen ... icles.html you can find at the bottom a special two axle Würzburg Radar. While the antenna looks standard (?), I wonder about the frame. It looks like an extended Flak frame or something. Does anybody knows more? I assume this radar was used only in Peenemünde?
Any idea about the frame / the two axle construction? Does any other pictures exist? I would like to design it in 3D.

Many thanks in advance.

Thomas

Hi Kurt,

the Würzburg with the A2 frame and later with a trailer like the Flak are familiar for me.
The Würzburg Riese on rails, I know. The version used for the V2 are new for me. I realized that they used a different frame. So do you know, if the diameter of the mirror was different? Do you know a second picture?

regards
Thomas
