One cannot compare Chinese fireworks with the machines like V1&V2; & one also can't prove that Soviets possessed any machines of such a magnitude with proper propulsion system as well as complicated gyroscope naviagtion system; plz do provide proof that such system was possessed by any powers but the Nazis...
First of all their gyroscope guidance was rubbish and allowed them the accuracy to target only enormous targets like London with very little accuracy.
The Soviets and US had already developed basic unmanned aircraft that could be called cruise missiles but they weren't interested in targeting London and any target smaller would be very safe so they dropped the programs till the guidance improved.
The Nazis developed big rockets from a need through a lack of large long range 4 engine bombers. The Luftwaffe was just the direct fire support arm of the Army and was mostly single and twin engine aircraft designed to support Army operations. They didn't even know how to fight another air power as shown in the Battle of Britain.
The Nazis were ahead during WWII in ballistic missiles because that is what their focus was, when in the immediate post war period the Soviets got their hands on V-2s over a similar time period that the Nazis took to develop a weapon with less range than a Scud and much worse accuracy (1936-1944) the Soviets were able to develop the R-7 ICBM (work started in 1953 and the operational missile was deployed in 1959).
If the R-7 was built using German standard practise it would have been a much smaller much lower performing missile.
The Nazis had a lead because no one was in that race at the time. Once everyone else entered the race the Nazi technology was quickly left behind.
Regarding Jet engines one can also proof that nt only engine but the swept wing configuration readily impressed Soviet & allies & the resulting Sabre & MiG-15 proof my point;
The swept wing on the Me-262 was an accident and didn't really make much difference to the aircrafts performance because it was no where near transonic. It could have made a difference if it was produced in numbers but there was no fuel supply that could have supported extra numbers even if Hitler didn't divert his designers by demanding a fighter bomber role for the Me-262 instead of making it a pure fighter.
The Sabre and Mig-15 needed swept wings because of their higher speed performance made swept wings more useful.
Soviets sorry to say used British engines onboard these MiGs...also British after smuggling large amounts of literature/scientists optimised their Jet engines & had they approved of their domestic Jet engines why didn't they start production??
If they didn't start production where would the Soviets have bought the Derwent and Nene engines from?
The Soviets had plenty of Nazi jet engines so if the Nazi engines were so superior why would they drop them like hot rocks given the chance to buy British engines?
The simple facts are that German engines burned a lot of fuel, had very short engine operation lives and weren't very powerful for their weight and fuel consumption.
Perfectly understandable considering they are first generation engines in their class but clearly not the best available in 1945.
The Soviets made the sensible choice to licence produce two British jet engines rather than to use their own engines or the captured German engines. The Soviets had actually focussed on rocket engines to boost speed in propeller driven engined aircraft, which led to a dead end. They were still able to produce the Mig-15 at a time when Britain and France and Germany were still stuck largely with propeller driven fighters and the standard US jet was a straight wing shooting star of much lower performance and were only just working on the new Sabre that was the only comparable jet in the world.
Via espionage Soviets got their nuclear technology...
First rule of war... there are no rules.
- The V1 is the historic mother of all cruise missiles.
The first in service, but not the only one in development.
- The A4 (V2) is not only the first ballistic missile but also the
first object to ever enter space.
Developed by a desperate state that couldn't design 4 engined bombers quickly enough.
Otherwise a complete waste of money and effort without an accurate guidance and a powerful enough warhead.
- The HO229 was the first aircraft with stealth capabilities
Early examples of true flying wings include:
* The Soviet Vladimir Antonovich Chizhevskij and Boris Ivanovich Cheranovsky designed what were then known as motorized gliders or tailless flying wings with a speed of 178km/h from 1924.
* The French Charles Fauvel designed the AV3 glider, successfully flown in 1933, featuring a self-stabilizing airfoil on a straight wing.
* The German Horten H1 glider flown with partial success in 1933, and the subsequent H2 flown successfully in both glider and powered variants.
* The American Freel Flying Wing glider flown in 1937.
* The American Northrop N-1M of 1940
* The British Armstrong Whitworth A.W.52G of 1944, a glider test bed for the later Armstrong Whitworth A.W.52 jet-powered version.
* The German Horten Ho 229 of 1945 - the world's first twin jet engine pure flying wing
Note the Horten is last on the list of flying wings and while naturally stealthy a flying wing is not stealth. They didn't know enough about radar at the time to even start to think about materials and shaping to make an aircraft design stealthy.
Mind if you tell me things other than scientists which that fanatic person did for his absolute POWER. what about Stalin purges & his Oh God..Ukrainian famine
That is rubbish. Stalin did what Mugabe has done to Zimbabwe... in both cases when you take large relatively efficient farms and break them up into little farms owned by people who don't have the interest or resources to maximise yields to increase production to feed the country you suddenly get lots of small inefficient farms that don't produce the food surplus they used to. SHOCK! HORROR! This leads to a food shortage, and in serious food shortages SHOCK! HORROR! People go without food. Depriving people of food leads to localised Famine. The difference between the Soviet Union and Zimbabwe is that neighbouring countries could sell them food so they start to import food whereas the Soviets didn't.
It wasn't a Ukrainian famine... it was a famine that effected all the Soviet states but as many crop farms are in the ukraine they felt it worse than other states.
He didn't & never did butchered masses
He was part of a colonial power that invented the concentration camp... in Africa. Hello black mr zulu man do as we say or we introduce you to mr Maxim Machine Gun... now give us all your land.
If Churchil had his way you would still be part of India and India would still be under British rule. And right now when they are cutting back on everything what they would actually be doing is sucking India dry of anything of value to keep the home country going.
The Commonwealth ceased to exist in 1795 as the Polish lands were partitioned among the Kingdom of Prussia, the Russian Empire, and Austria. Poland regained its independence as the Second Polish Republic in 1918. See Poland existed well before WW1; it may have been weakened & conquered by said forces but nonetheless to say that it existed & had different people/customs/language than Soviets.
How do you know? The Soviets included 13 republics and Russia alone has hundreds of different cultural and ethnic groups. Scotland and Wales and Northern Ireland have different people/customs/language to the English. What is your point?
If Poland wanted freedom it should have fought for it like anyone else. Poland has no special rights to exist any more than any other country does.
NON AGGRESSION Pact hehehe we know better what the NKVD & SS looted the smaller Balkan states & Poland.
Why shouldn't they? After WWI Poland was happy to take land from Russia. When the Germans invaded Czechoslovakia Poland snuck in and took a piece too. The Baltic states had no problems finding volunteers to kill jews and all sorts of other groups when given the chance... in many cases they were worse than the nazis, and I am not sure what you mean by the Balkans as the Soviets didn't do very much down there.
The notion that Stalin got closed to Hitler was the urge of expanding his empire via any means & not bz British was insincere or something & guess what Nazis didnt prove to be rather good friends
As I said before the Soviets and Germans weren't friends. A non aggression pact would not have needed to have been signed if they were friends... a verbal agreement would have done.
BTW when the Japanese found out that the Germans had signed an agreement with the Soviets they realised they couldn't trust the Germans so when Germany started asking the Japanese to start a second front in the Soviet Union they refused. That saved the Soviets a lot of problems.
Stalin was given a choice... get half of Poland... and move your forces a few hundred kms further away from Moscow... or get nothing and have German forces on Polands border with a potential conflict with Germany.
The British were no help and could be no help because they had no way of directly intervening. The war might have started with the German invasion of Poland but nothing actually happened because Germany and Britain were separated from each other... they actually named it the Phoney War.
...& Stalin never used derogatory remarks for Capitalist West??
Churchil is the west? As Churchil said... History will be kind to me, because I intend to write it myself... and he did. There is a reason he comes out smelling of roses in the west.
Stalin in the first place befriend Nazis to gulp more land & then he got with Germans attacking his frontlines
Get it into your head... Stalin was an A hole... he didn't trust anyone. He had no friends.
The reason he didn't act when the Germans invaded and had his forces ordered to not respond to enemy attack was because he was sure it was all a British plot to start a war between the Soviets and the Germans so that the British could sit and watch the two sides rip each other apart. In the end he wasn't far wrong because that is what Britain did... sat on its ar$e and let the real fighting occur on the Eastern Front.
