Short range ballistic missile. Developed in Germany By Von Braun.

After the war captured German V-2's were launched by the British, Americans, and Russians. Personnel and technology from the V-2 formed the basis for subsequent rocketry developments throughout the world.

Vengeance 2, the rocket developed by the German military during world war two. Due to the fact it cost the same to luanch 20 V1's as it did one V2, they were muched feared, especially in London which was a primary target for attack. At one point, the entire population of London was considered to be evacuated. For the sake of avoiding panic, Churchill kept what the public knew to a minimum. The V2 was eventually decided to be equipped with more dangerous materials, namely, nuclear. By the time this was possible, allied forces had pushed forward into germany and the remaining luanch sites were out of the maximum range for the V2, deeming it useless.
The V2 was a vain effort by Germany to prolong inevitable defeat by a few months.
