Here is my attempt at recreating the V-1 flying bomb developed by Germany during WWII as part of the Vergeltungswaffen (retaliatory weapons) series of unmanned weapons which included the influential V2 rocket guided ballistic missile. However, this version utilizes a mobile piston powered launch platform that can be used to launch the V-1 on any runway or straightaway. To launch, give it full throttle and pull up hard. Once the craft reaches 255 MPH press 1 to detach from the launching platform.

    Thanks @Deloreandude. TBH, I have tried unsuccessfully to build a launch rail system previously, however I am currently working on a new more historical accurate design.

    EPIC!!!! great job making a V-1, It looks fantastic! I have a question/request though. Could you possibly make a launch rail in the future? That would look AMAZING!!!!
