Ian Hogg in his book "Ger,am Secret Wea[pms pf tje Secpmd World War, in Appendix 1 reproduces what he describes as follows
[quote]On1 January 1945 the Army Weapons Office prepared a “Special List” of ammunitin manufacturing projectw which were then authorized and in progress. [/quote] He then provides a list of the projectsby company name.
A number of the SAA projects are quite interesting.

Does anyone have a copy of the original document that they can post or send by email?
I think I have seen material on a few of these projects like the Lead-Free bullets, but it isn’t clear to me whether these are the same projects.
Does anyone have any information on the “Prinz Albercht” explosive projectiles?
Any information is appreciated.
