The Lyrics

After 63 years of silence, Britain released details of an obscure plot in 1945 by Hitler to attack British targets using the most unorthodox scheme ever - a 700 mph pin-point Vergeltungswaffe (Revenge Weapon) V-5 glider towed to Britain by a Me Bf 109 and released to cause havoc. The Bombensegler would be of largely wooden construction with rigid metal structural supports throughout the aircraft and a 48 degree wing sweep designed by Dr. Alexander Lippisch himself working closely with DFS. It was designed to carry a single SC-1000 (2,200 lb) bomb for target delivery. Drawings have come forth dating from 1945 that were discovered in the Reichs Chancellery building which were recently auctioned off in a London auction house in late 2008, expected to fetch around 3,000 pounds Sterling!!! OPERATION: The DFS Bombensegler (Bombing Sailplane) was to be towed covertly by a Me Bf 109 using a Deichselschlepp tow bar to an altitude of around 26,250 ft out to 6.2 miles of the target at which time the glider would be released. From that altitude, the Bombensegler would attain a theoretical diving speed of 700 mph near the target and release the slung SC-1000 bomb at approximately 2,300 feet from the target. With the low profile and high speed it is doubtful that once released from the towing aircraft (an armed Me Bf 109G or K) that the glider would be intercepted by anything the RAF could throw up against it, including the Gloster Meteor jet or Hawker Tempest. Of course, before release the Luftwaffe Me Bf 109 pilot would have faced the same vulnerabilities as the Mistel pilots!!! Yet once the bomb was safely dropped, the glider would deploy an inflatable balloon after a sweeping curve to carry it up and away from the blast area to a safe distance.There were recovery plans, but no one could agree on the best way to get the pilot back to safety once on enemy territory. Due to time constraints and DFS prior commitments to aircraft such as the DFS-228, DFS-346, Lippisch DM-1, the Mistel projects, as well as a television guidance plane in 1945, nothing became of what the British would later come to name the V-5... “Hitler’s Pub Dart”.


V-5 was Waffe von Vergeltungs
“Pub Dart” throw
From Bf 109 hurled
Desperate, last of the V-Waffen
Worth a go
From Bf 109 hurled
SC-1000 for destruction
A 700 mph drop
Dropped, would be impossible to fight
Dropped, would be impossible to fight
Dropped, would be impossible to fight

Was part of German retribution
Terror show
Fast pin-point attacks were the plan
It was a desperate solution
Went real slow
They only drew-up plans
Fighter would tow it with Deichselschlepp bar and wait
Pilot would dive it on target and then escape
Dropped, would be impossible to fight
Dropped, would be impossible to fight
Dropped, would be impossible to fight

Designed for almost Mach 1 flight run
V-5 GO!!!
Explosion and people dead
Pilot rescue, no real solution
Or suicidal- he’d be dead
Never operational, in Berlin papers found
British thought it was the craziest idea around!
Dropped, would be impossible to fight
Dropped, would be impossible to fight
Dropped, would be impossible to fight

109 was slow, 109 was slow
In flight with the V-5 it could not fight
It would be intercepted alright
A bad blow, a bad blow
In sights, receiving strikes
Lost fight
Lost fight
