Name of the page[edit]

Shouldn't this page be called Ruhrstahl SD 1400 X? As I know the Fritz X is only a nickname for this weapon.

Anyway, I added a redirect from Ruhrstahl SD 1400 X to this page. Talamus 23:56, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

Additional info[edit]

More information can be found at: http://www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/LRG/fritz.html For example they say that the base of this weapon was an ordinary 1400kg bomb (PC 1400), hence the 1400 in the name.

If someone got free time for checking and wikifying... Thank you! Talamus 00:18, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah this article lacks alot of information. It mentions how the guidance system can be jammed, but it doesn't at all explain how the thing was guided and why this was important as (one of?) the first guided missiles in history.--Stevekl 03:01, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Was it a missile or was it a bomb? I thought a missile needed to be propelled at some stage of its journey, while a bomb just gets dropped.

It's a guided bomb (now called a PGM). TREKphiler hit me ♠ 04:36, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

My ex X, Number One[edit]

Two issues.

"spoofing, in which the missile was given a signal sending it out of control, into a stall or spiralling dive."

Doesn't it also include simply diverting the bomb off-target?

"lost steam (and thus all power"

Is this necessarily true? It may be in this instance, but I've heard of cases where loss of steam didn't consequently mean loss of all ship's power, & I've a hunch it wasn't that simple, especially when she'd have had diesel auxiliaries, no? TREKphiler hit me ♠ 04:36, 23 August 2008 (UTC)
