Hmm by jump the ladder (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri Aug 01, 2008 at 07:33:02 AM EST
Not sure that a a German strategic bombing force that could hit NY would be a war winning stategy. The US has plenty of space to move industry. And strategic bombing takes a long time as shown by the allied air offensive over Germany.

Would have been better to concentated on bombing Russian industry in the first place and building up a fleet.

One theory was knocking the UK out of the war by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #2 Fri Aug 01, 2008 at 07:40:20 AM EST
The Virus House says the Nazis had found a way to enrich uranium and were close to having a enhanced dirty bomb that would fit in a V-2. Something that did a nuclear fizzle to get 10-100 tons of TNT equivalence and long term radiation, the theory was a few hundred of them on London might have been enough.

They might have been able to do something similar to NYC, pointless terror bombing.

It's hard to say what the truth was, Ohrdruf reports were classified for 100 years, there's a rumor the Luftwaffe had a rebellion rather than bomb with some oxygen sucking coal dust bomb that could devastate cities, soon enough you're into flying saucers and Nazis bases in Antarctica.

for Zero Point, lots of flying saucer research under the Nazis, which leads to time travel and the B-2 being powered by Nazi research.

Sound like the Horten ones, flying wings with jet engines.

Back in the early 90s I used to love playing this LucasArts flight simulator called "Secret Weapons of the Luftwafe". That was one of the planes you got to fly (or shoot down).

they had some great ideas, but thankfully insufficient time and resources to implement them.

Bombers by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Aug 01, 2008 at 08:47:25 AM EST
It'd have made more sense to use it to bomb the Russian industry beyond the Urals, but I suppose by the time this project happened, it was too late.

gotten past the Urals, they would have had the resources and time to perfect their long range bombers. Come 1944, the only hope for success was some insane wonder weapon which would make the Allies sue for peace.

I'm no expert on the jetstream, but if the Nazis had put their minds to it, something like this launched from France might have worked...

On another note: I tried to google Wendy Gazelle because I don't remember her, but every link takes me to pix of Sandra Bullock in "The Net".

Because the blitz was so successful... by wumpus (4.00 / 1) #22 Fri Aug 01, 2008 at 02:28:39 PM EST
As far as I know, the material cost of the Blitz was higher on the Germans than the British (and most of that sunken into civilian buildings). There is also said to have been a review of strategic bombing made after WW2 that said that convential bombing was pretty pointless (it tends to do little more than increase enemy morale).

If they really wanted to bomb the US, they could have sent some bombs to Japan and let them send it. Of course, I don't think they found out that they even landed until the US population at large heard about it (the 80's, I think). The diference here is that the Japanese balloons worked.

Personally I equate (strategic) bombing with terrorism. It doesn't advance your agenda with your enemy at all, but is still popular in pretending effectiveness for home politics.

My view by jump the ladder (4.00 / 1) #23 Fri Aug 01, 2008 at 03:09:58 PM EST
The Germans in 1940 lacked the heavy bombers, the tactics and technology to properly strategic bomb the UK. They only had twin engined medium bombers and were only accurate in day time and had no real escort fighters.

The Brits and the yanks took until 1944 to perfect their strategic bomber offensive and it was by that time no longer needed as a war winning strategy as Germany was losing the war conventionally anyway.
