Timeline Notes and Speculations Edit
- This takes place in the fall of 1944. Previous events from The Hostage are mentioned by Schultz. The on-board guidance system for the rocket may have been the same one on which Major Lutz was working in Klink vs. The Gonculator.
- The target of General Rauscher's improved V-2 rocket is the British battleship HMS Duke of York, third vessel of the King George V class. Although it is not stated in the episode, the reason for this was because the Duke of York was responsible for the sinking of the German battleship Scharnhorst, in the last battleship duel between British and German vessels.
- The faux V-2 rocket and launch gantry fabbed for this episode look nothing like that actually used during the war. Aside from the many technical and trivia issues, the most obvious difference is that the V-2 in this episode is considerably smaller than its real-life counterpart.
