The Trygon Factor (German title Das Geheimnis der weissen Nonne ("The Secret of the White Nun")) is a 1966 British-German detective movie directed by Cyril Frankel and based on the 1917 Edgar Wallace novel "Kate Plus Ten". A police inspector who investigates a series of robberies is murdered when he finds a tie between the crimes and an order of nuns that is sheltered by Lady Emberday. Superintendent Cooper-Smith (Stewart Granger) takes the investigation in his hands.

The film is the 22st installment in the Rialto Film studio film series (1959-1972) and the only one really made in England by London subsidiary of Rialto Film. Eddi Arent took leave of the Edgar Wallace series with this film.

Other Weapons

Fictional Rocket Launcher

The gang uses a fictional multi-barreled rocket launcher to opens the vault with gold bars.

Emil Clossen (Eddi Arent) stands in protective suit near his invention, the multi-barreled launcher. Both the launcher and the suit were possibly originally created for some sci-fi film.
