Heh, consider a one-two shock attack with a flight of these V-2s followed by bombardment of several locales from submerged U-boats (say, Type XXi's that had streamlined launchers mounted on deck - the article makes clear that earlier model U-boats couldn't have done it).

Considering the A-4/V-2 launch failure rate in optimal conditions, a single successful water launch
would be near miraculous.
 ;D
As to the artillery rockets, a handful of subs with a handful of rockets would have done little lasting
damage to the New York port structure.
Also if the German's had managed to to carry off a semi-major attack against the US mainland, it's
likely that all German cities would have been Dresdenized.

Nah, they couldn't produce enough bombs to do it before the war ended.
