Collection Item Summary:
This is a model of unknown scale of a Nazi glide torpedo. Launched from an aircraft, it was desgined to fly down close to the surface of the ocean. At that point, a liquid propellant rocket engine would engage and power it to the targeted ship. The available evidence suggests that several test flights were made of this weapon but that it never became operational.
C.L. Zakhartchenko built and donated this model to the Museum in 1970.
