Operation Pelikan(German:Unternehmen Pelikan), also known asProjekt 14, was a German plan for crippling thePanama CanalduringWorld War II. In mid-late 1943 theWehrmachthad completed preparations to haul twoJu 87 Stukaswith folding wings on twoU-boatsto an unnamedColombianisland near the coast ofPanama, reassemble the planes, arm them with "special bombs", and then send them to attack theGatun Dam. After completing the mission, the pilots would fly to a neutral country and seek internment. However, Germany called off the plan, for unknown reasons, at the last minute. Rumors among the Germans who planned the sabotage were that it had been called off due to betrayal.

Most of these types of plans involved acts ofsabotageusing agents in place and/or landed by U-boat.[1]
