The British determined Peenemünde's purpose in 1943, and subjected the base to heavy bombing as part of Operation Hydra. When Peenemünde was overrun by the Soviet Union in 1945, the base was already substantially destroyed. The USSR maintained a base there until it was turned over to East Germany in the 1950s.
Today, it is home to Peenemünde Historical and Technical Information Centre.
Peenemünde survived both World War II and the Race Invasion of Tosev 3. In the years after, it became home to the Reich Rocket Force, Germany's orbital defense force. Ships flew out of Peenemünde daily, orbitted Earth, and returned home.
Peenemünde was commanded by Lieutenant General Walter Dornberger from the 1930s until the Race-German War of 1965, when it was destroyed by one of the Race's explosive-metal bombs. Dornberger survived, and became the new Führer and Chancellor of Germany.
