Will we see any of the V2 rockets the Germans produced used against the Russians?

There is absolutely no need to do so. The V2 could deliver a large payload, but inaccurately. I have yet to see an advantage in using the V2 over continued use of mass bomber formations. Unless you can find one, of course :-)

I see what you mean as the V2s were used as terror weapons against England and nto so much against front line troops. I figure German and American scientist could work to improve their guidance system or if they get close to Russian cities they can start using them.

Again, what advantage would that effort offer? Lot of development dollars versus reduced exposure of bomber crews. Next to no red air force at the mo... can't see it, unless the warhead is changed to something more... err... modern.

Not the V-2, but there were plans to use the V-1 derived JB-2 "Loon" during the invasion of Japan.

I thought the loon actually saw service?
