Captured German film about the Fritz X bomb from the Air Technical Service Command. The German's were the first to use a "smart" bomb in the second world war, by using radio waves to actually steer the bomb. Fritz X was the most common name for a German air-launched anti-ship missile, used during World War II.

Fritz X was a nickname used both by Allied and Luftwaffe personnel. Alternate names include Ruhrstahl SD 1400 X, Kramer X-1, PC 1400X or FX 1400. The latter is also the origin for the name "Fritz X". Along with the USAAF's similar Azon weapon of the same period in World War II, it is one of the precursors of today's anti-ship missiles and precision-guided weapons...
