V-2 Repair Facility at
Kleinbodungen, Germany




     These two photos are of the V-2 repair facility at Kleinbodungen, Germany, which was cleared on April 10, 1945, by tanks and infantry of the US 83rd Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, after overrunning the German rear guard elements and fighting with occasional Panther tanks.  This is where the V-2 Rocket on display at the White Sands Missile Range Museum came under control of the US forces and eventually made its way to White Sands Proving Ground, New Mexico.
