Description

The development and deployment of the WV-4 was a resounding success. On paper, we mean. It was never used, and we’re not sure what the criteria being judged were, but everybody seemed to be happy with it.

That is, until about five minutes after it was presented to the top brass. They indicated that eight warheads were clearly not enough, when it was expected that the enemy would have eight warheads per missile, as eight is the universal maximum grouping figure. So the order was put forth to build it bigger and mount eleven warheads.

Werner told them Ja, we can do this. But we need to have a more powerful first stage, and the warhead delivery vehicle needs to have its own propulsion system. And fins - we’re going to need fins.

As the project had the momentum of a giant bag of elephants rolling down a cliff, the KAF gave Werner a blank check and told him to start making up numbers.

We’ve removed the explody part of the warhead, the Air Force wanted them back for some reason. The warhead itself is an independent, spin stabilized ballistic shell. It reenters the atmosphere and impacts with a speed of several hundred meters per second.

Lev Aerospace - doing what we’re told to do but also secretly working on a Mun mission at the same time.
