V1 Feuerstellung Proven - Richtplatform

In West Flanders, 18 V1-bases were built, which were never used because the Allies were too close when the bases were finished, or the bases were even not completed.

The bases only contained a concrete Richtplatform for the tent where the V1 was assembled and aimed and a ramp (FST).
