November 20, 1944. The USS Mississinewa, a massive oil tanker, sits off the coast of the island of Ulithi. At 5:45am, an explosion rips apart the vessel. This is the work of the Kaiten--a manned, suicide submarine. It is designed to be driven directly into an American ship before detonating. Meanwhile, the German Luftwaffe unleashes its own secret weapon...the rocket-powered Me163 Komet. The Komet was designed to rocket up to altitude, pass through a bomber stream at over 600mph, then streak back through the bomber stream on its way down. The US Navy pursues research into remotely-controlled airplanes backed with explosives...in essence, guided missiles. First-hand accounts, rare archival footage and original shooting supplement the remarkable computer graphics.
