    to your last question........ yes it was used on several missions by the Geschwader stab of Jg 7 with no results. It was quickly taken off as the two under nose launchers were too heavy but it was the basis of sorts for the new and upcoming R4M's first used on march 18, 1945 with devastating results, many B-17 crews that were hit thought it was Flak that had taken them out ........
