In the US Carriers book, Friedman mentions that after the war, considerations had to be made in carrier designs for a "14-inch rocket", that did not progress far enough to enter service:

The only information on this rocket I could find comes from the Wikipedia article on the Tiny Tim:

(I would assume that these two 14" rockets are the same.)
The source for this passage is from Popular Mechanics:

Does anyone have any more information on this weapon (e.g. technical specifications, drawings, data tables)?

(Side note: "Fourteen-inch Richard" is quite a name for a rocket weapon. Certainly it will "penetrate" a lot of ships...)

According to Wolf,

This rocket started development in the spring of 1945 but had a very low priority assigned so beyond a few prototypes it really didn't get much attention. Development continued at a low priority to Jan 1947.
