Historically one of the most important missiles, as it is the introduction to air-to-air missiles as an effective action, it is wire-guided, its design was initiated by Dr. Max Kramer of Ruhrstahl in 1943, under the designation RK 344 of the German Air Ministry. Abandoning the shape of an airplane, Kramer chose the configuration of the Fritz-X, with cross-shaped wings placed around the center of gravity and cross-shaped ailerons with control rudders placed in the tail of the missile, turned 45 degrees in respect of the wings. The swept wings reduced aerodynamic drag while the missile was suspended from a turbojet aircraft and allowed it to briefly reach speeds in excess of Mach 1 after the ignition of the BMW 548 rocket engine.but this overview exists in all the technical documentation relating to the X-4.This was for the history of the X-4 which continues to generate interest even in an auction where a unique piece of an authentic X-4 was exposed for sale.
