Information about "secret" German weapons leaked out so fast that someone might have been pumping. The reported weapons:

> A "liquid-air rocket bomb" that can be fired against targets 70 miles away.

> An interceptor-fighter plane with a rocket-booster mechanism which enables it to sustain a climb at an angle of 45 to 60 degrees, zoom to an altitude of 22,000 ft. in two minutes.

> "A new kind of underwater arm" (promised soon by naval chief Admiral Karl Doenitz, to make up for the admitted defeat of the Nazi U-boat campaign).
