Pulse jet and turbo don't belong in the same contraption, and quite possibly, not in the same sentence.
The V-2 did fly with a pulse-jet engine, and had a ~500 lb payload or something like that. Pulse jets are also popular for model airplanes.
V-1 was a Pulse jet buzz bomb, V-2 was rocket named the A-4
I agree a pulse is not a turbo, as a turbo spins and a pulse uses a flap
also a pulse need a running start as the flow at rest is = to zero
V-1 used an air drop or RATO to get going
