The Lyrics

This is a mini-parody about the Ba-349 rocket interceptor of WW2 which was the fastest (admitted) aircraft at 620 mph vertically! It was designed as point defense interceptor but was more of a manned rocket with the pilot sandwiched between the forward armament nosecone filled with rockets (24x 73mm Fohn OR 30x 55mm R4M) and the gas tank behind feeding the Walter HWK engine! The launch gantry could be set-up on a telephone post anywhere or could be launched from a ship at sea- it was that adaptable. But it was an emergency aircraft that was derived from another of Bachem's two-stage rocket schemes with Fieseler- the unapproved Fi-166 program that mated an armed glider to a Peenemunde A-5 rocket! Almost 40 Ba-349s were made and many were either tow-tested or tested unmanned with a dummy. But the 1 manned test in Feb 1945 ended with the death of the pilot 5 seconds after launch as the Natter canopy was ripped loose and struck the pilot who unconscious died when the uncontrolled Natter turned over and plummeted to the ground. 5 more airframes completed were slated for manned testing but their fates are not known. One earlier prototype BP-20 version was manned after being towed into the air by a He-111H-6. By the time the aircraft were ready, Allied tanks rolled into the area and they were captured. Technically operational, but no offensive launches. Full operation with the A-model was to commence on May 10, 1945 but Germany surrendered 3 days earlier! It was to attack USAAF bombers from beneath by launching salvos of unguided rockets at close range at the belly of the target at height. The pilot would then separate the nose cone, unbuckle and pull a lever to engage the rear chute which would throw him free of the airframe to open his own chute! No other military aircraft like it in history and first designed VTO combat aircraft. The USAAF got 4, the Soviets got 1, and the French got a few. But no one wanted to operate volatile rocket fighters in war, so it was a deadend program.
*HWK screams[1]*

Manned rocket, a site defender
620 (mph) clocked, flak interceptor[2]!

Go! Go! Go!

Bachem’s Natter...
Rocket glows [3]...



Bombers engaged...
[1]The Walter HWK 109-509 rocket motor @ 4401 lb st (pronounced here as HAWK not H-W-K
[2]The Ba-349 was known as the "Manned Flak Rocket" and was not viewed by the SS as simply the first military VTO aircraft. It was to be assigned to a Flak Unit for operation, not a LW airbase
[3]The climb of the Ba-349 was phenomenol for the time and even respectable today at 36,000 fpm!!! It climbed on a column of fire and smoke!!!
