The V-2 rocket was Hitler's vengeance/victory weapon which he used upon Great Britain in 1944 during Earth's Second World War. Ultimately, however, these weapons were used too late to have any affect on the outcome of the war.
The A4 rocket, model 4 in the Aggregate series, was the first man-made object to reach space.
Fitting their Nazi theme, the Ekosianmissiles were represented by footage of V-2 rockets. This footage was actual historical footage, captured after the war by American forces during their hunt for V-2 technology. Shown was a pre-operational test launch – as indicated by its black-and-white checkered livery for visual speed and distance gauging – at Peenemünde, before that test site was largely obliterated by the RAF in 1944; operational V-2s, handled by the Luftwaffe, bore a camouflage livery. Released afterwards in the public domain, the footage went on to arguably become the best known one of an actual V-2 launch, and has been featured in countless documentaries dealing with the subject.
