The Soviets started reverse-engineering the V-2 when they captured some key V-2 rocket production facilities and one main V-2 manufacturing facility in Nordhausen in Thuringia, Germany in 1945. In 1947 Stalin authorized the production of R1 and then approximately 4 variants of the rocket were produced.
