for First
that real proposal by Max Valier in 1929
Unfortunately Valier was killed in 1930, when an alcohol-fuelled rocket exploded on his test bench


second
So called Von Braun "Rocket interceptor"
there were some study but nothing serious.
For my part, this thing is a urban legend

More on this Interceptor

Only the pulse jet looks plausible. Luft '46 has a few sketches of a Heinkel 162 powered by the same pulse jet engine as V 1 flying bombs, but no prototype was ever built.
