Orientation to Craft Operation Systems

[U ] #1 The following defines the major subsystems of this craft, as well as the weapons systems recovered and reconstructed.

[U ] #2 This is not meant to be a definitive analysis, and only addresses one Craft. Variations are to be expected.

[U ] #3 For orientation purposes on flight characteristics, see http://www.hawking.org.uk/space-and-time-warps.Html

So now that you've all absorbed the egghead stuff, let's turn to the craft's two major subassemblies; the flight deck with engines (or "saucer") and the crew compartment and payload bay.

Saucer drive technology and construction is someone else's department, so we'll go down the rabbit hole on the interior (which I imagine feels like a cross between a Ju-88 flight deck, a Tiger II turret and the interior of a U-boat.


Yeah, most of the interior looks like this...

So if this thing can jump point-to-point across Space-Time and only needs fuel for operations in the immediate Area of Interest, then beyond what's needed on the flight deck can be devoted to payload; Assault, 'Exploration' or... "Humanitarian Operations".


Everyone knows that all of Pax Americana's best weaponry was the result of Operation Paperclip. That'd be your stereotypical...

The weapons system on this was a precursor of the Vertical Launch System.


Two racks, with launch points in the center top of the saucer, allowed for warhead selection based on target.




Everybody tracking like a 'lazer' beam so far? Any questions? Buehler? Anyone?

This is coming right along, and great story! It's good to see this kit become something great, rather than sitting in my closet.

 As a long time student of the odious myth of the Nazi flying saucers, I heartily approve of this, and look forward to seeing the work progress.

That said, it's bisected horizontally.

See if you can guess what went into this stew. Currently sitting @ 85% complete.

ADDITIONAL COMBAT CAPABILITIES

[U ] 1. Capabilities: while this class of saucer's primary armament was a twin missile launcher, other operating systems were employed with lethal/catastrophic effect against contemporary Allied aircraft.

[U ] 2. Saucers were capable of both atmospheric as well as trans-dimensional flight, via gravitation engines and a portal drive respectively. Reference the gun camera frame B2309-30121946 (3), saucer pilots were able to score kills by A) initiating the first stage of the portal drive against airborne targets directly in 'front' of it [note the cone-shaped 'haze' to the left of saucer] and B) engaging the reverse polarity on the gravity engines when over airborne targets [indicated by expanding 'ball lightning'].



[U ] 3. Single frame of USN gun camera footage.

How do you think Byrd's people got all the information they did? It wasn't epiphanies from a bunch of Tech Intel types over a pile of parts. The black box was *mostly* co-operative, but HIPAA regs prevent total candor about the peculiarities of that source.

Thanks, gentlemen. I'm noodling the last few steps.
