(sorry for my English)

I remember some years ago I've read something about V-1's warhead versions. There were mentioned a standard steel version, plywood-made version, a body of SB1000 bomb... I can't remember what was this publication or website.
Maybe someone have such detailed information about V-1 warheads as total warhead weight, explosive weight, kind of explosive etc.?

I have a rather good book about the V-1, 'The Flying Bomb' by Richard Anthony Young.
I think there might be some info in that, trouble is, I'm staying with family over Christmas, and will be away from my library and PC for the next few days.
Will get straight on it when I return at the weekend.

Cheers,
         Robin.

Thanks a lot! These pictures are impressive. Unfortunately there's no weight data about most of these versions :(.

Besides the manned V1's - Reichenberg I to IV (1-4) -  there
was also a V (5)version. This fuselage of this concept was much shorter in front of
the cockpit and it was seen as an alternate trainer for the He-162 instead
of the He-162S.

A V-1 Zwilling (twin-fuselage, twin-pulse-jet) has been built, but maybe only as what-if model after the year 2000. I don't know if this has been industrially considered during WW2.

I'm not sure, that the photo really depicts a launching ramp. To me it looks
more as a trailer, the downfoldable and lockable wooden sides are clearly
visible, I think.

I'm afraid the V-1 Zwilling is a Internet Fake ...

Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink.
I needn't argue with that ; I'm right and I will be proved right.
I don't know which will go first, Rock'n'Roll or christianity ?

Keep in mind that most of the published drawings of the various machines are badly inaccurate, either in small ways, like not showing that the fuselage just aft the fuel tank section has a stretch segment or that the fin and rudder have increased cord, or more major features. like the entirely speculative version of the two-seat machine, first appearing in Wm Green's "Warplanes of the Third Reich" and repeated in the posted drawing sets.
