Detail of the stencils on the lower half of the buzz bomb's mid-fuselage. They read "Herkules" and "Abstellpallung". "Herkules" seems to just translate to "Hercules", which seems straightforward but at the same time an odd thing to stencil onto a flying bomb. I've tried and failed to locate translations for "Abstellpallung" and some related words; about all I could find is that "pallung" means some sort of cradle or bracing.
