***DER RIESE RECORDING #6***
The following is a transcript of the sixth in a series of recordings that originated from the Der Riese test facility in Lower Silesia. The voice heard in this recording is DR. LUDVIG MAXIS. This transcript is a dictation of a letter to the Reichstag High Command requesting additional funds for the Wunderwaffe projects. The recipient of this dictation is his presumed secretary, a woman by the name of SOPHIA (full identity unknown).
Note that Dr. Maxis makes reference to "operatives in America." The identities of these operatives were never uncovered.
MAXIS: Sophia, this letter is to go to the Reichstag High Command immediately.
MAXIS (cont): Gentlemen, it is with the utmost urgency that I draw your attention to the lack of funding being injected into The Giant project. While I believe we are close to realizing the ultimate plan, we still have several years of development before it is ready. It would be folly to cut our expenditure so early in our development.
MAXIS (cont): As you know, early tests on the DG-2 have easily outperformed expectations and we fully anticipate mass producing the Wunderwaffe within the next few years. Work on the matter transferer has, however, come to a standstill. We simply do not have enough Element 115 to continue the experiments. The test subjects have survived teleportation but are currently unresponsive to commands and cannot be controlled. If we are to overcome this obstacle we need to increase the frequency and size of the experiment.
MAXIS (cont): To this end, I suggest we find not only a regular supply of 115, but that we also find a larger conduit to channel the energy. Our operatives in America have informed us that the US have a large supply of the element at the Nevada base, so time is of the essence if we are to stay ahead of them. This cannot be done if you cut the budget; nor can it be done if you insist on pressuring us into action before we are ready. I am of course available for discussion of the matter but in the meantime, I will continue with the work here and try to win this damned war. Signed etc. etc. Doctor Maxis.
