Unless Germany could develop Nuclear warheads of course.
actually the V-rockets did pose a threat because, lets take new-york as an example:
New-York is a very crouded city where lots of people live in one place, so if a V3 lands of new yourk there are going to ba alot of casualties.
since the V-rockets were not very acurate, you could place a guidance divice on a roof top of a skyscraper in new-york (e.g: Empire state building) that will guide the rocket to its target.

The V3 rocket was planned to have that kind of range (to be launched from germany, fly all the way to mainland USA and strike new-york).

so use your head and check your facts.

Yeah, I think that I saw something like that on the history channel, but I don't remember what it was called.
I remember that they said that by striking mainland USA with these weapons, germany hoped that USA would quit the war.
I don't remember anything else, If they will show it again, than I will watch it.
I don't even remember if it was on the history channel or on some other channel, or maybe even I saw it in a computer game movie clip.
(I saw and read alot of information about these secret weapons so thats why I don't remember where i saw it, I DON'T have a memory problem).

It was made purely for reaching London, with speed 1500m/s, again Use your head, turn it on, or maybe you already did, but it's malfunction, better turn it off, it's much more smarter

Mr. Sam:
The V2 rocket was build for reaching london,
and the V3 rocket was planed for reaching new-york.

For once I agree with You, I am Mr. for you.
And another thing about V3, it was made mainly for London, but New York, was it's secondary objective! And not all could reach New York...
One unfortunately did, target was Empire State building.
That was on August the 3rd 1944, hitted the 87th floor!
But it was the only one, they had 8 months after, and didn't do anything.
Why? Germans also did have plenty of time to make more of those rockets, now let's see your brain, why they didn't?
