V-1 Carrier planes

Hello,

I think the Heinkel He 111 is known as the common carier for the V-1.

But quite a while ago, I saw an picture in an old aircraft magazine called "Der Flieger", showing a Fw 200 as V-1 carrier.

Also recently I found a short video clip showing a Ju 188 dropping a V-1.

Is anything known about these two types used as V-1 carriers?

Kind regards

Here is an old 12 OCH post about the Ju-188 V-1 carrier:

Re: V-1 Carrier planes

The He 111 was the only type that launched the V1 operationally but the Ju 88 G and Ju 388 were considered (see the attached item).

At least three Ju 188 where use. W-Nr. 10009, 170463 und die 260394 for trials.
The latter on was used for the first sharp shot against London.
If a Ju 188 launched a V1 against London, could you give the source for this information and the date of the launch?
