Developed in Germany, the V-2 was the first liquid fueled rocket to see combat. Approximately 3,170 launches were made between September 1944 - March 1945 targeting Belgium, London and Paris. The V-2 development program used a large portion of the GNP of wartime Germany with varied political, propaganda and military results. The technology gained from the V-2 formed the basis for subsequent rocketry development throughout the world.
