- This fragment is part of an experimental prototype of the dreaded V-2 missile
- Uncovered in Blizna, Poland (second test launch site after the August 1943 air raid on Peenemünde), many V-2 fragments were recovered in the area (presumably from test crashes). This piece was imported directly in 2017 in a large cache of V-2 aluminum, steel, and carbon graphite parts
