America: 1946


Recommended Posts

(This is a sequel to my very unfinished America: 1951, which I lost motivation to do after only 2 years ingame) 




Germany fell. Joint allied and Comintern occupation of Germany. Von Braun and his men were lucky. Why? They got to US forces as opposed to soviet forces. After a year or so, Von Braun was ready to become a rocket scientist again. The twist? He was now an American rocket scientist. The year is now 1946, January first. Now, it is in their hands. Will the soviets win the space race or will the Americans? The worlds fate was in their hands. And thus begins the tale. The tale of America: 1946.

But wait AmericanRocketryRambler, RSS starts in 1951, not 1946!

Look again. 


It says 1946-01-01. You are not going crazy.

As well as this, the controls do not unlock until 1951, so no plane contracts allowed in settings, as well as no downrange trys until 1951.

We now begin, starting off with building a small Wac-Corporal from the USAF.


Now, we fly the WAC-Corporal, on the 23rd of July, 1946.




It soars through the sky, gathering data and transmitting it.


Camera results show the first picture taken past 50km, a blurry, black and white, pixelated photo, transmitted over the antenna.


Finally, the rocket returns to the ground at supersonic speeds, destroying it, as well as finishing the contract. The launch totals us 2.9 science, as well as giving us 42k funds in total.  We now begin research on post-war rocketry testing, as well as materials science.

Now, our goal is to pass the Karman line, which we missed by 9km last time. To do this, we develop the Aerobee XASR-1, with a bigger fuel tank, and better sustainer. This, however, will require us to finish our research, so we also accept a Sounding Rockets (Low) contract, which requires us to reach 40 km. Very easy, seeing as we reached 91km our first launch.


Now, it is November 25, and we have the WAC Corporal 2 brought out to the launch pad.


The WAC 2 Easily breaks 40km, and soars up as high as the first launch did.


It falls back to earth bringing us back over 2.7 science! We use the science for early SRB's and guidance systems. 

Now, after 8 days, we begin development on the Aerobee XASR-1


However, its launch, and all of the launches following it, are for other years, outside of 1946.
