      The Bumper was a two stage missile consisting of the V-2 first stage and the WAC Corporal as the second stage. This was an experimental configuration to investigate unknown factors which might be associated with stage seperation and ignition of the second stage rocket motor at high altitudes. Six bumper missiles were fired at White Sands Proving Ground, New Mexico and two were fired from Cape Canaveral (now Cape Kennedy), Florida.
