Overview:

           Germany was the leader in strategic rocket technology during World War II.  The rules presented here replace the Rocket Technology for Germany. The V-1 and V-2 Site markers represent these rockets and their associated launching facilities (launch ramps, rocket and fuel storage, personnel, vehicles and so fourth.)

Historical Context:
           The V-1:
The V-1 was a pulse-jet powered flying bomb deployed in June 1944.  Over 9,500 of these weapons were launched at England from sites along the French coast.   A launch site could optimally launch 15 V-1s per day.  The weapon had a 160 mile range, within which it could deliver an 850kg warhead.  About 25% of V-1s reached their target, the rest falling prey to countermeasures and guidance errors.  Still, the overall effectiveness of the V-1 was quite good considering its casualties per ton were the same as a conventional bomber without any risk of loss of personnel or aircraft.

           The V-2: The V-2 was a liquid rocket propelled ballistic missile developed by Germany in the later stages of the war.  Over 3,000 V-2 rockets were used against allied targets.  A V-2 launch facility was mobile, allowing rockets to be launched from almost anywhere.   Mobile launching equipment would be serviced by storage dumps located in in the German countryside.  About 350 V-2s could be launched per week : 100 per day under optimal conditions and maximum effort.  The V-2 was fast and almost impossible to intercept with aircraft.

Rules:

I.   Technological Development: This replaces rockets on the Global War development table for Germany.   The development of the V-1 and V-2 occur simultaneously.  Players purchase rolls of a D12 for 3 IPC.  They may attempt one roll on Strategic Rockets per turn.  Once a Germany achieves 25 points they may build V-1s.  One they reach 35 they can build V-2s.
