    On 09. May 1941 the first complete launcher sets (450 pieces) were delivered to the Luftlande-Sturm-Regiment 1 of Oberst Bernhard Ramcke. In the time before, there was only testing and developing.

    Is any chronological information available on the supposed second version of the GG/P-40 with the extended nose cap?
