  1. The V1 was not started with the compressed air stored on board. It was started using "compressed" air while it was stationary by injecting the air via three ducts located behind the valves. This was done by an external source as was the spark needed to start. Both were disconnected when the engine came up to temperature. The compressed air on board the V1 was for operating the guidance computer and control surfaces. It was launched via a catapult and a rail like the ones aircraft carriers use to aid jet take off. This system propelled it to about 250 mph in about 3-5 seconds.

  2. So many missing pieces,do you really know?fuel atomization,through compression restrictions not ideal, inlet design not practical.
