V-1 Rocket IRL

The V-1 flying bomb (German: Vergeltungswaffe 1 "Vengeance Weapon 1") was an early cruise missile and the only production aircraft to use a pulsejet for power.

The V-1 was the first of the so-called "Vengeance weapons" (V-weapons or Vergeltungswaffen) series designed for terror bombing of London. It was developed at Peenemünde Army Research Center in 1939 by the Nazi German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. Because of its limited range, and the poor accuracy of its gyroscopic guidance and ranging systems, thousands of V-1 missiles launched into England were fired from launch facilities along the French (Pas-de-Calais) and Dutch coasts. The first V-1 was launched at London on 13 June 1944, one week after (and prompted by) the successful Allied landings in Europe.

The British operated an arrangement of air defences, including anti-aircraft guns and fighter aircraft, to intercept the bombs before they reached their targets as part of Operation Crossbow, while the launch sites and underground V-1 storage depots were targets of strategic bombing.

Battlefield VEdit

The V-1 Rocket is featured in Battlefield V as a Squad Reinforcement. It was first seen in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer. The rocket appears as a Squad Reinforcement, and can be called in to attack a target by a squad leader once enough score has been accumulated. The V-1 is the Wehrmacht equivalent of the British JB-2 Rocket.
