La Coupole (English: The Dome) was a Nazi Germany bunker constructed in a former limestone quarry and planned for V-2 rocket assembly and launches. The site was bombed as a "Heavy Crossbow" target and as a result the site was no longer viable as a launch site and the rockets made there were to be launched from mobile firing batteries instead.
