"V" weapons




A series of Vergeltungswaffen – "vengeance weapons" – designed and built in Nazi Germany for use against allied countries in World War II. The only ones to be significantly deployed were the V-1 and V-2. The latter was extraordinarily influential in the years leading up to the Space Age.
