A barebones design, constructed mostly of wood, the Me 163 lacked even proper landing gear. To launch, the rocket plane attached to a dolly which detached upon take-off. Upon landing (assuming it survived) it would land on a skid, requiring a tractor rig to tow it off the runway.
An Fw 190A-7 of l./JG 11 is refuelled and rearmed at Rotenburg in March 1944. The armorers working below the wing are loading ammunition into the outer MG 151/20E wing-mounted cannon. The aircraft also carries a 300-liter drop tank. The A-? variant packed a far heavier punch than the original Fw 190A-1 and A-2 of 1941-42, thus making it an ideal “bomber killer”.
Scho-Ka-Kola is a brand of German dark chocolate that contains additional caffeine from cocoa, roasted coffee, and kola nut. The chocolate is divided into triangle-shaped pieces held inside of a round metal canister. The red-and-white design and recipe have changed very little since the original launch in 1936.
In World War II, it was referred to as “Aviator Chocolate,” as it was commonly provided with Luftwaffe rations.
