The V1 was a pulse-jet powered, cruise-missile type of craft. There were
also rocket-powered designs developed in the late 30s/early 40s: apart
from the V2 (A4) surface-surface missile there was the "Rheintochter"
surface-air missile, the rocket-propelled He 176 and Me 163 aircraft, and
the Ba 349 "Natter", a semi-kamikaze type of craft (the pilot was
supposed to land by parachute).
