In 1944, Germany had developed the V-1 flying bomb. The Vergetungswaffe 1 Fi 103/FZG-76 (V-1), known as the Flying Bomb, Buzz Bomb or Doodlebug was the first modern guided missile used in wartime and the first cruise missile. Called the Buszz Bomb because of the characteristic sound of the engine, it caused considerable fear in targeted areas. People would listen to the missile approaching but then be relieved when it could be heard overhead as that meant it had actually passed them. If the ending noise cut out, it was time to take cover as the unpowered missile would go into its terminal dive and explode. The early versions were launched from aircraft and not rocket launchers as they were later in the war.

Designed in direct violation of the Treaty of Versailles, the Heinkel He 111 first flew on February 24, 1935. Masquerading as a transport aircraft, the He 111 was actually a fast medium bomber that went on to become the most prolific Luftwaffe bomber used during the early part of WWII. During its early service career, the He 111 had the distinction of being one of the fastest aircraft in the world, with speeds exceeding 250 mph. It was also versatile, serving as a medium bomber, strategic bomber and as a torpedo bomber. By late 1944 the Luftwaffe halted bomber production, and the He 111 became a transport aircraft.
