Abstract:

In the given article there are considered only certain questions of the history of development of long-range rocket weapons in the United States in the postwar period and the basic tendencies of development of American rocket technology. This development is on the road to improve ment of technical- tactical and characteristics of the rocket weapon and the broadening of the scope of the execution of firing problems. The military and political leadership of the United States, depending mostly in a new war on the nuclear rocket weapon, are applying great efforts for the development and creation of second generation ballistic rockets with solid-fuel engines, reliable and accurate systems of control, mobile launching equipment and interchangeable warheads.
