Rheintochter was a German surface-to-air missile developed during World War II.


Rheintochter was ordered in November 1942 by the German army. Starting in August 1943, 82 test firings were made. An air-launched version was also designed.

The project was cancelled in February 6, 1945.


The initial R1 variant was powered by 2 stages solid fuel rockets.

Because this lacked the ability to reach high altitudes, the R3 model was developed, which had a liquid fuel motor with solid-fuel boosters
