Other: Rocket Artillery
The 28/32 cm Nebelwerfer 41 (28/32 cm Nb.Wf 41) was a six
barreled multiple rocket launcher mounted on a two wheeled
carriage. And fired a 28 cm Wurfkörper Spreng missile
or the 32 cm Wurfkörper Flamm missile that was spin stabilised
electrically fired. The crews of these weapons could only
fire once because smoke trails marked the firing location,
making it relatively easy for the enemy to shoot back. Counter-battery
fire was thus a serious issue for rocket units

The 28 and 32 cm rockets could also be fired from their packing
cases, the cases had hinged legs to adjust elevation. The
packing cases could also be mounted on schwere Wurfrahmen
