As an underground launch site, the Mimoyecques' Fortress is one of the most impressive edifices imagined by Hitler.
Located a few kilometers from the site of "Deux-caps", in Landrethun-le-Nord, at locality of "Mimoyecques", this secret base was expected to be used for the installation of the giant underground V3 super gun.
Like other V-weapons, the V3 was foreseen to bomb England, especially London.
The Site was shelled by the Royal Air Force, on July 6th 1944 with Tallboy bombs, wich put an end to the grave threat for Londoners.
In 2013, La Coupole oversaw the works of the legacy development of this former base for a new historical visit.
