I’ve actually seen and been inside one of these for real in the technical museum in Speyer, Germany. It was really impressive! When we saw it though, we couldn’t help but thinking it looked like they had covered it in toilet paper :wink:

It’s with projects like these that you realise the extent and importance of industrial espionage during the Cold War. It makes you wonder who copied who?
