A large V2 Rocket graphite rudder fragment. Solid graphite fragment measures 16 x 3.5 x 9 and has been drilled on the underside with 12 holes partially through the block and is accompanied by its metal mounting bracket. In fine condition. As engines were not yet able to gimble, these rudders were mounted in the combustion chamber to deflect the plume. It was recovered near Peenemunde, likely from a test. An uncommon V2 relic.
