add nose weight accordingly. If you need info on how to swing test see this link.

If you are looking to do research nothing beats V2rocket.com Interesting V-2 facts -6240 originally built -3590 originally flown -Out of those 3590 flights 2890 were successful (81%) -1200 V-2s were fired at London alone [...]
