Hydraulic Leg (Jan, 1947)
I have two hypothises for this picture. Either The Nazis were almost successful in creating an army of cyborg stormtroopers to take over the world, or somewhere on the back of the picture it says “Property of Fritz Lang.” (In German, of course).
Hydraulic Leg designed to give amputees the knee action essential in climbing stairs efficiently was developed by the Germans. The picture with schematic drawing at left was found among enemy documents and studied closely by the U. S. Air Material Command. (Compare with drawings in “Limbs To Order,” MI, Nov. ’46.)
