The Henschel Zitterrochen (Torpedofish) was a subsonic missile. Designed and developed by Henschel und Sohn under the leadership of Dr.-Ing. Voepl.

The Henschel Zitterrochen which was tailless mono wing missile, the thin wings having a triangular platform and the so-called Wagner bar control's or spoilers at the trailing edges. A missile, developed from this was imagined as having an underslung tailplane, attached to a ventral fin and two underslung rocket pods. In 1944 the Henschel Zitterrochen was ready for production, but was cancelled by the RLM, however, the work wasn't wasted because the control methods were adjusted for the Hs 298 and Hs 117 missiles.
