This was undoubtedly copied from the famous Barnes Wallis dam-busting weapon, though in fact it was nearer to another bouncing bomb designed by Wallis – the much smaller Highball, two of which could be dropped from a Mosquito. Kurt was rocket-assisted, the rocket breaking off on contact with the water, leaving the 850-lb bomb to bounce over the sea for up to 500 yards before sinking alongside its target, then exploded at a given depth by a hydrostatic fuse. Kurt was extensively tested, initially using a twin-engined Me410, though later experimental drops were made by a single-engined FW190 which was able to carry two of the bouncing bombs. But Kurt, like Highball, never bounced in anger; the project was cancelled in 1944.
