Udet purchased US built dive or 'strike' bombers in the 1920s & no one said boo about it then.

Accuracy of free flight or ballistc rockets at longer ranges or 20+ Km would be unsuitable for anything but the largest area targets. Would the early aircraft auto pilot type technology of circa 1940 allow for economical guidance of 'heavy' rocket artillery? Or is that pushing beyond the limits? And, would such a system keep the probable error from aim point within 200 - 400 meters radius?
