There are other factor's to consider, the NAZI's actually seized the information of all the patent offices in every country they entered as well.
They did create thing's which we today do not hear about, read a book called the HUNT FOR ZERO POINT by Nick Cook, this guy researched the NAZI's
wonder weapon's including story's and eye witness accounts of projects such as the BELL, the testing rig which was obviously designed to hold
something down though there is no evidence of Rocket engines being used at the scene and indeed that is not what they witness reported either, there
are other story's about something that may have created exotic radiation or even time displacement.
Unfortunatly this PDF version seem's to be abridged as the first edition I used to own seemed to have a lot more information as well as many
But I digress, one of the device's mentioned but neither detailed nor shown and which sadly had no actual witness except for it's apparent effect's
was something which shut down all the petrol engines (Spark plug's), radio's and other electronics (valve based back then of course) in a certain
german city and this forced Allied bombers to fly over 5000 feet in the effected area with those flying lower often losing power, apparently diesel
engines worked fine in the city though, I am not sure this it is in this PDF but it was in the original text I read, either way the NAZI's did have
very advanced techonology.
Of course though independantly invented there JET engine was also more primitive or rather less refined but it's worst failing was the lack of proper
materials necessary to make it stable at high temperatures so it was forced to use substandard metals and alloys in it's construction as the allied
blockade prevented the NAZI's getting the required preferred materials and so there engine would burn out after a few uses and had a very short
service life, after the war some German pilot's whom had flown both the ME 262 and the Glauster meteor stated that "If only they had possessed the
meteors engine on the 262" because the german invention of the swept back wing's for high speed was superior as was the ME 262's airframe and together
these two components would have made the ME262 unbeatable.
Perversely had the air ministry not been filled by old men with backward view's of warfare the RAF may have had Jet Fighters by the mid thirty's but
they refused to believe Whittles invention was necessary or even workable and a similar thing happened with MIXED UNIT TACTIC's, between the wars the
Germans were technically prohibited from rearming by the Versae treaty but that did not prevent Civilian German Observors attending western war
game's, a young British leutenant had the idea of mixing ground and air with naval forces in one excercise and trounced his openant but was actually
berated by his superiors for incorrect use of military forces while a Civilian German Observor took the idea back home and we all know where that went
of course - the Blitz Krieg.
The German's made a number of assumption based errors in there tactic's as well, they for instance did not believe the Allies had radar and would
have never guessed that though a different type of radar (the principles were the same) the British radar was in fact superior to there own.
The German's however did as late in the war as late 1944 develop a new type of weapon that could very well even at that late stage have changed the
course of the war, it was not there inovative cruise missile the V1 or there devestating (but resource hungry) high altitude rocket the V2 but it was
something even more revolutionary for the time, an air craft launched wire guided anti ship missile system.
This Guided missile was tested successfully in life action against a troop ship, the troop ship was sunk and the service personel on board (US) were
of course lost but thankfully the air craft never reached German territory to report it's success and was shot down on the way back leaving the
German's to assume failure, of course we learned and later developed our own version's of wire guided missiles.
The Germans had an aversion to Einstein in part because he was a JEW but still persued the Nuclear Bomb, this aversion however meant that Quantum
theory or rather it's precursor actually recieved it's first real research in NAZI germany, as for the nuclear bomb telemark was a important allied
action but did you know that the British were actually perhaps a year ahead of the NAZI's in this field, all the British research, Material's and most
of it's high ranking scientists were sent to the US to form a unified team and propelled the US research ahead as a result with of course Openheimer
claiming the credit? but that aside given the NAZI's priority it may have propelled them to the point were the race for the bomb may have been closer
than anyone think's, there is also some anecdotal information that they may have continued researching it and the infamous UFO forum loved event's of
the 1947 Operation high jump by the US which sent a unified task force to Antarctica nearly two years after NAZI germany had collapsed may indicate
the possible presence of ongoing NAZI research even at this post war period, about six months after Bird's expedition RETREATED from the antarcic
there was a seismic event in antarctica which though it may have been an earthquake could also just as easily have been a device detonated beneath the
Lastly let's not forget the German invention of the STG 44 Sturmgewehr Assault rifle, the German's had met the unarmed soviet death charge and seen
how it had successfully overrun there positions time and again, there sub machine gun did not have the accuracy or the range necessary and was suited
really only to indoor or street by street fighting while there rifles lacked the rate of fire so they developed this the worlds first assault rifle,
it was too complicated and prone to jamming en.wikipedia.org...
But it was actually superior to the M16 with was developed much later after the allies had there own human tidal wave experience in Korea, it also
inspired the AK47 which was independantly developed.
Just a note of trivia, the AK47 is less accurate (but only when the machining is coarse and only when it uses substandard produced ammunition) but it
fires a much larger round than the M16 and was catagorised as a light anti vehicle weapon capable of penetrating light vehicle armour, the M16 was of
course designed solely as an anti personel weapon, has a probably higher cyclic fire rate and greater accuracy but less impact force for each round
due to smaller round size, the STG 44 used a custom shortened rifle round so would have stacked more along the lines of somewhere between these two
but was too complicated with too many part's and far too highly engineered meaning that it was even more suseptible to dirt than the mk 1 M16's which
failed so dreadfully in vietnam before the US chromed the barrels and the GI's took to covering them in condom's but the M16 even then remained the
superior anti personell assault rifle, I wonder though how it would have stacked up to the STG 44 had that original assault rifle recieved more
