For what it's worth, a google translation of the article :

Among the numerous means of interception aerial research and developed by Messerchmitt in the early months of 1945 in the plant in Oberhammerganin the Bavarian Alps. there were twenty examples of Flugzeuge ohne Piloten (ie unmanned aircraft). Those tiny airplanes rocket could be raised in the air directly from the starting point, sliding on adjustable guides for pointing fast to the raiders. The interceptors, reached the bomber's quota, rather than self-destruct against the planes enemies. they could automatically shoot and escape the radio-guided enemy fire by expert operators who could control the attack phase through a special television system.

The type "Krache" (crow), long little more than five meters with short flap wings equipped with ailerons for a more comfortable maneuverability and four stabilizers in tail, he could throw a salvo of eight rockets of 60 m / m then reached a quota security, descended in glide and a few hundred meters in height, a parachute jumped gently on the ground, ready after a refueling to be used again.

In the fuselage of oval section the rays were inflated in the ogive and in the internal space of the rocket launcher was installed the radio-guiding system. They followed the fuel tanks, the rocket engine, a driving light for night launches and accommodation of the parachute.

The other smaller and with characteristics almost identical to the first, wore a 30 mm cannon and once when he had completed his task as an interceptor, he was radio-guided to the ground where he was resting on a retractable skate.

The first type was equipped with a rocket engine Konrad with two liquids; nitric acid like oxidizer and oil as fuel. the fuels were pushed into the chamber of combustion from compressed nitrogen.

The second type employed a motor rocket B.M.W. on which it is not given you know any particular.

My opinion
The Enzian came to my mind yes.

In the text tho, it is mentioned that the unmanned rocket interceptor would shoot at the bombers and then evade to land and be used again later on. Definitely not the Enzian then.
