THE BALTIC SEA “THING”: UFO? SECRET NAZI SUBMARINE TRAP?July 25, 2012
I had a lot of emails on the Baltic Sea "thing," the object on the floor of the Baltic Sea in the Gulf of Finland, which some are saying is possibly the remains of a crashed UFO, and which RT TV is saying might possibly be some sort of Nazi secret weapon, a submarine trap. Now, believe it or not, I have a few problems with the Nazi submarine trap explanation, which I'll get to in a moment, but first, the RT TV article:
Now, here's the central part of RT TV's argument that this may represent some sort of Nazi submarine trap:
"The mysterious disc-shaped object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea could be a relic from a giant World War II device placed there by the Nazis to disrupt Soviet submarine navigation.
"The object may be the concrete anchor of the device, which also had to be fitted with stainless steel mesh, Swedish naval officer and warfare history expert Anders Autellus told Swedish newspaper Expressen. It would interfere with submarine radar signals and make them crash.
"The mesh itself may well have eroded away over the decades, but the images of the object made by the Ocean X team exploring it show what appear to be holes, where it was attached to the foundation, he added.
"Stefan Hogeborn, a member of the team, concurs, saying their find is located just under an important shipping route. German vessels carried many goods important for the war effort during the war, and Soviet submarines sneaking from the Gulf of Finland into the Baltic Sea targeted them."
The problem I have with this explanation is that, while it is true that the Germans shipped things through the Gulf of Finland to their Finnish allies in the war, if I recall correctly, most of that shipping went into ports much further south than this object is located. Other than that, I'm not aware of any other major German naval activity that far north. The only other major German naval surface operation in the Baltic during the war that I am aware of was the evacuation of German troops that had been cut off from the main forces in Courland during the Soviet Operation Begration offensive in June of 1944, and again, this is far to the south of the location of this object. And of course, we can rule out altogether any relationship to German naval operations off of Danzig at the outbreak of the invasion of Poland in 1939.
The bottom line for me then is that the object is simply in the wrong place for this explanation to make much sense, with apologies to RT TV. Nor am I aware that the Germans ever having deployed such a strange submarine trap. While there are, of course, thousands and thousands of pages of documents on Nazi secret projects - most of them still locked up in the Project Lusty archives - I am not aware of any project having to do with submarine or anti-submarine warfare in the bizarre zoo of Nazi secret weapons projects that looks like this. So for me, the Nazi explanation here makes no sense at all.
What then, is the object? I do not know... time, research, will tell.
See you on the flip side.
