First manned spaceflights[edit]

Where is this information sourced from? I've read many books by Von Braun, listened and watched many interviews with him, and never did he mention these supposed manned launches of a A9. I will delete this from the article soon if it is not properly sourced.--Abebenjoe 15:06, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

This stuff deserves immediate removal. It went in in this edit and was later moved to the A9 section. In the process, the source reference was dropped. It was an "article" in Russia's Truth: "Nazi Germany achieved its technological advantage with aliens’ help". I've taken out this material. -R. S. Shaw 21:46, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
You might have taken it out, but it's ba-ack. Looks like the fanatics are at it again. I've checked the four links, which are given as references for the 'uncorroborated reports': three of them are broken, and the fourth links to some blog about a host of pseudoscientific topics. Since four dubious sources are no better than one, these spurious entries can probably come out again. Oboroten (talk) 14:37, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Sprechen zie?[edit]

Can somebody translate Aggregat? TREKphiler hit me ♠ 14:02, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/aggregate : From Latin aggregatus, aggregare (“‘to flock together’”). In German, "ein Aggregat" is a combination of parts, a device, a machine. For example, a "Stromaggregat" is a mobile engine-driven power generator. -- Matthead  Discuß   15:38, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

A4b[edit]

Can anyone clarify the fourth paragraph of this section that begins "Freiburg Bundesarchiv Military..." as it doesn't seem to make sense grammatically.

Picture is wrong[edit]

The scan of a original document describing the from of A-9 can be found at http://www.v2werk-oberraderach.de/Irrtuemer/5-I.htm, section "Wiederaufnahme des A9 Projektes" (website in german).

Quote: "Aus diesem Grunde ist es unbedingt erforderlich, an der bisherigen Grundform der A-9 festzuhalten, ... Es ist deshalb geplant, Körper und Flügel gegenüber dem Entwurf A4 V12c nicht mehr zu ändern, ..."

Translation: "For this reason it is essential to retain the current basic form of the A-9, ... Therefore it is planned to not alter the body and wings compared to design A4 V12c, ..."

Pictures of the A4 V12c can be found in the same source. It had swept wings, not chimes as pictured —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.23.160.41 (talk) 22:11, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Projekt Amerika[edit]

A nonsense statement I trimmed from the A9 section:

(following the failure in November 1944 of the Elster operation, a Nazi plan to install a radio beacon on top of Empire State Building skyscraper).[citation needed]

Operation Elster was concerned with no such shenanigans, it was an espionage operation aimed at gaining information on The Manhattan Project.
I only wish it was easier to find who originally made a particular non-recent edit. Perhaps there is some secret to searching the history that I don't know? It would make it easier to track down some of the 'sleeper' vandals currently on long-term clandestine disruptive operations on WKP. This type of insidious (often amusing) edit damages WKP and its reputation. Centrepull (talk) 12:53, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
