Russian Ramming Interceptor

Something I came up with as an alternate history for Russia in WWII - a rocket interceptor with tungsten steel spikes on all leading edges so they could ram their way through formations of German bombers. They were to be rail launched, and would deploy a parachute to land, after the rocket motors were spent.

Here's the emblem for a squadron of the interceptors. I think he looks a lot like William F. Buckley

Here's a cockpit view of some of the interceptors racing toward the bombers. What's not pictured here is the high-tech (for its time) vodka delivery system for the pilots.
