"Operation Eagles Flight" V2 Array Previsualization

The Nazi Array (Rocket Container) being towed to... Argentina?

Tom Guttry of ACE (Alchemic Creative Entertainment) asked me to help visualize just what an Array might have looked like. An Array was an underwater launch pad for a V2 missile that the 3rd Reich wanted to launch at New York City at the end of WWII. I had never heard of this particular Nazi secret weapon and was intrigued as to how it might look. I referenced a very crude plan view to create a scale 3D model and paired it with a WWII-era U-Boat that would have been utilized to tow the vessel to its launch site. A frightening scenario that thankfully never materialized. However, of the three Arrays that were known to have been built, only two destroyed Arrays were accounted for after the war. This image depicts the last surviving Array being transported to Argentina and filled with missing gold bullion to finance the fleeing Nazis' escape. The missing gold, estimated to be worth billions, has never been found.
