The Rheintochter is a mobile anti-bomber weapon equipped with a ground-to-air guided missile. Its tracking system never misses its target, and the rocket instantly destroys any airplanes.
German arms designers and manufacturers were known for ideas ahead of their time, and the Rheintochter is one of them. Although it never was deployed during the war, the Rheintochter was a much more simple version (it relied on human control for flight and detonation) of the surface-to-air missiles developed in the 1950s and 1960s.
- Pros: It's a 'one shot, one kill' device: it never misses, and the target always goes down.
- Cons: Long reload time and weak armor.
- Bottom Line: Mix them in with Wirbelwinds for a mobile, powerful AA system.
