About the V-1 Flying Bomb:
The V-1 Flying Bomb was an early cruise missile and the first to use a pulsejet for power. It was developed at Peenemünde Army Research Center by the German Luftwaffe during WWII. Due to its limited range, the thousands of V-1 missiles launched into England were fired from launch facilities along the French and Dutch coasts. At its peak, more than one hundred V-1s a day were fired at Southeast England. A total of 9,521 were fired, decreasing in number until the last V-1 site in range of Britain was overrun by allied forces in October 1944.
As part of Operation Crossbow, the British operated an arrangement of air defenses including anti-aircraft guns and fighter aircraft, to intercept the bombs before they reached their targets. During this time, launch sites and underground V-1 storage depots were targets of strategic bombing.
