All this could be used when invading mainland US
Well I don't know how much is that

But maybe the last one E555-11 could reach NY

Here's a nice picture of various types of German Rockets
They were really preparing for war!

Wow, a whole 4 moths before the gun was completed, amazing that they could do that. It was an American Bomber lost in a could bank, not a shell from a German gun over 3000 miles away.

Yes, it was a B-25 I think, and it was an accident.

On the V2 rocket deal, the Germans had everything figured out for firing them from a U-Boat from the surface, it just had to be build into a U-Boat. Prolly wouldn't have taken long. Regardless of that, the US would do exactly what evey other country did under a constant barrage: adapt and move underground and just plain fight on. The real mess comes if Germany ever develops Nukes and loads them onto a V2 on a U-boat, etc. Then the US woulda been screwed - we had no basis for catching up to German rocket technology and ICBM's would DEFINITELY be developed by Germany first, and then we're screwed even more completely.

And yeah, the V3 was a "super cannon" artilery concept.

There was also a bomber at the end of the war wich actualy flew on a mission to New York or at least a few miles from it (without any payload). All I remember is that it was a Focke Wolf.

Anyone has any links on it

Hm, looks like a conspiracy theory site...
Can't find any other "evidence" of it than that.

The V3 never was a rocket, it was a rocket assisted artillery shell...
