Baltic Sea 'UFO' may actually be a secret Nazi super-weapon lost in WW2
Sonar scans have shown that the device, raised 10ft above the seabed and measuring 200ft by 25ft, could be the base of an anti-submarine weapon.
The weapon was built with wire mesh which could have baffled submarine radar, leading enemy craft to crash - a lot in the exact same way as turning out a lighthouse could be utilized as a weapon against shipping.
But now former Swedish naval officer and WWII expert Anders Autellus has revealed that the structure - measuring 200ft by 25ft - could be the base of a device developed to block British and Russian submarine movements in the area.
The large steel-and-concrete structure could be one of the most essential historical finds in years.
Autellus claims it would have been built of double-skinned concrete and reinforced with wire mesh to baffle radar - which could clarify why the dive team's equipment repeatedly failed near the mystery object.
‘The location was important to the German war machine simply because most of the ball bearings for its tanks and trucks came from right here. Without having them the German army would have ground to a halt,’ explained one professional.
‘This device dwarfs anything ever located ahead of and is an essential weapons discovery,’ they added.
Explorer Stefan Hogeborn - who is studying the images for the Ocean X diving team - agreed: ‘It is a good candidate for the answer to this mystery. The object lies directly underneath a shipping route.’
‘It would be of enormous weight in steel and concrete. Other Nazi anti-sub anchoring devices had been nowhere near as huge,’ he added.
Whilst the Ocean Explorer team is understandably excited about their potentially earth-shattering find, other individuals are slightly far more sceptical and are questioning the accuracy of the sonar technologies.

Divers exploring a 'UFO-shaped' object in the Baltic sea say that the strange, curved object might be a Nazi device lost beneath the waves since the end of the Second World War. Sonar scans have shown that the device, raised 10ft above the seabed and measuring 200ft by 25ft, could be the base of an anti-submarine weapon.
The divers exploring a 'UFO-shaped' object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea say their equipment stops working when they approach within 200m. Professional diver Stefan Hogerborn, part of the Ocean X team which is exploring the anomaly, said some of the team's cameras and the team's satellite phone would refuse to work when directly above the...

The man leading the exploration has also stated that he is pretty confident that the object had to be constructed or placed there whether by man or nature in the pre ice age days.
On a side note, do not forget that the Naval Operation called FRUKAS halted the exploration team by a day or so.
If anyone knows the whereabouts of an old German anti sub structure in the Baltic Sea, the Navy would.
It is possible that the Military has told the team to end their search of the ACTUAL anomaly, and offered them the location of an old german relic nearby as a deal to keep the actual anomaly secret. Or else....
All Im doing is thinking of as many angles as possible about this topic. As soon as I heard of the Navy delaying the teams trip in early June, the Red flags went up big time. You don't mess with the Navy if you are an Ocean Explorer Team. And to be honest, seeing video and photos of the 2 men leading the search, they never seem to look very happy lately, almost like they have already been let down in some way. I could be wrong as I dont know their natural personalities.
Lets hope the new trip this week brings some more evidence of what the object is.

I listened to an interview on GroundZero , The gentlemen who runs the operation said he never once called it a ufo . But he also said he believes they have found something very very strange and more research needs to be done before anyone knows what it is .
