The Ark Addendum - The Destron Base of Masterforce (part 4)

My examination of the Destron underwater base from Masterforce continues.  Now we pivot to the outside of the base, with two underwater radar installations, and a close-up view of one of the launching tubes.

The launching tubes are amazing and terrifying.  I'd be nervous to tangle with any Transtector that shot out of that.  Those tentacles look like they could smash to bits any unauthorized vehicle attempting entry.

The two drawings on the top are not entirely clear to me.  I believe that the three meter tall elements are the various probe things coming off of the structures.  However, the shape and size of the structures are somewhat mysterious.  They're not big enough to be the Destron base, so what are they?  Any insight from hardcore Masterforce fans (Carlos? Ivan?) would be appreciated.

Incredibly creepy & interesting model-sheets. Not at all what I would have expected from Transformers, but it definitely adds to the monstrous qualities of the villains.
