V2A9 - The V-2 (Vergeltungswaffe 2), technical name Aggregat 4 (A4), was the world’s first long-range guided ballistic missile. Developed during the Second World War by Germany as a "vengeance weapon". The V-2 rocket also became the first artificial object to travel into space by crossing the Kármán line with the vertical launch of MW 18014 on 20 June 1944.
A4b winged version was further developed into A9.
The trajectory for such a missile involved a boost to an apogee of 29 km, then a stable glide at 20 km altitude at a speed of 1250 m/s. At the end of the glide, the missile would have descended to 5 km altitude, then make a vertical dive on the target in the fashion of the Fi-103/V-1.
This piloted version was planned either to have first hand research of supersonic flight or preparation for space flight. Further refinement of the A9 design was halted in 1943 when von Braun's team was directed to devote itself completely to getting the V-2 into production.
