  TextEN  The development of this SB 800 RS "Kurt" bouncing bombs against ship targets begun in the autumn of 1943. The few available informations reporting about many successful bombings in several different versions The first test had been done without the rocket propulsion engine and were not very satisfactory, since the impact speed was quite low. The later test were more satisfying, but the tests had been stopped in August 1944 for some reason. The bullet could bee accelerated by the rocket engine within 3 seconds to a speed of 330 m/sec. At the same time still in air the ball was seperated from the rocket engine. The bouncing bombe reached a speed range of 4500 meters.(756).(757)
