1944‑04‑27 96 322 Target: V-Weapon Service Bunker (under construction)
Type: CROSSBOW (V-Weapons)
Location: Sottevast, France
V-Weapons Attacked: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew as an independent group (no wing formation) on the first of two missions today. The target was partially obscured by haze making sighting difficult. In addition, the AFCE failed on the bomb run, requiring increased coordination between bombardier and pilot. However, most bombs were dropped right on the target area.
