Sottevast V2 Facility

Description: The two massive German works projects in the Cherbourg peninsular were intended for the launching of V-weapons toward England. The Germans had started construction of a protected launching site at Brecourt and like the giant V-2 launching bunker near Sottevast, both were captured by advancing Allied troops before their completion.

The site at Sottevast was intended for operations of the V-2 in much the same way as the Watten site. The bunker would be built using the "Verbunkerung" system for testing, fuelling and servicing of the V-2 in a hardened, bomb-proof shelter. Construction was started at Sottevast in October of 1943 and continued through the Spring of 1944. Work on the site continued even while under the constant threat of Allied bombardment (bombing of the site began in February of 1944).
