V2 rocket

V2 A4 rocket

The V2 was steered using graphite rudders in the main engine thrust flow but also each of the four fins had a steering/air rudder in the outer edge.

This is the remains of a fin rudder that was fired at London. It measures 46 cm x 44 cm x 12 cm.
There is original green paint on the outer steel skinning as well as red iron oxide on the inner surface. There is also a lot of black burned paint from the rocket explosion where this was piece was blown off. The large metal piece at the top is a steel counterweight welded to the frame.
