First words
The German V-2 was the world's first ballistic missile used in combat. It was a technological marvel that pioneered many key innovations in missile technology. But as a weapon, it was a complete flop, costing Germany enormous resources for very meager results.
The cost of development and manufacture of the V-2 was staggering, estimated by a post-war US study as about $2 billion, or about the same amount as was spent on the Allied atomic bomb program.
