For issue 48, delayed from Issue 46, there will be an article about the little-known heavy launch sites near Wizernes and Watten, respectively, in Northern France, that were built, between 1943 and 1944, in order to rain destruction down on London and other European cities, with the V2 ballistic missile. The incomplete, but well-nigh indestructible buildings are still there, and visited, to this day. Below is what a V2 launch at the Watten Blockhouse would have looked like.
