The 30 cm Nebelwerfer 42 (30 cm Nb.Wf 42) was a six barreled
multiple rocket launcher mounted on a two wheeled carriage
converted from the launcher for the 28/32
cm Nebelwerfer 41
by changing the open metal launcher
frame. And fired a 30 cm Wurfkörper 42 Spreng 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
