These are real pieces of V-2 rocket shrapnel.
Constructed by Nazi Germany, the V-2 was the world's first long-range, guided, ballistic missile.
These pieces of twisted wreckage were from a rocket that struck near a British farmhouse, killing the two occupants.
This rocket segment measures ~3" long.
We can ship these specimens worldwide.
The Vergeltungswaffe 2 ("Retribution Weapon 2"in English) was used to attack enemy civilian centers in retribution for the wartime bombing of the German homeland.
Over 3000 were launched against Allied nations, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 9,000 civilians and military personnel. An additional 12,000 forced laborers and concentration camp prisoners died, after being forced to construct these weapons.
The V-2 was also the first man-made object to reach space, with the vertical launch of MW 18014 on June 20th 1944. After the war, seized V-2s, their associated documents/hardware, and the importation of German scientists, became the foundation of both the United States' and Soviet Union's space programs.
