History

The Blohm & Voss L10 Friedensengel (Angel of Peace) was a winged torpedo glide bomb designed and developed by Blohm & Voss in 1942 under the leadership of Dr.-Ing. Richard Vogt.

The Blohm & Voss L10 Friedensengel (Angel of Peace ) looked like a small aircraft in its own right, and was designed to carry a standard LT 950 aerial torpedo up to 9,000 m towards an enemy target. The carrier aircraft making the attack run had to fly at a steady speed of 310 km/h, once the torpedo had been released. The carrier aircraft triggered a time fuse, thereby deploying a small kite which was towed behind a glide bomb on a 25 m cable. When the glid bomb hit the surface of the water, sensors in the Kite would detach the glider body, allowing the torpedo to continue fully submerged to target.
