Autellus explains that the “UFO” structure could be an anchor or base of one of the German Nazi military devices for blocking British and Russian submarines in the area.
The Daily Mail reports that Autellus says the steel and concrete structure could be a very important World War II history find. An expert said: “The area was vital to the German war machine because most of the ball bearings for its tanks and trucks came from here. Without them the German army would have ground to a halt. This device dwarfs anything ever found before and is an important weapons discovery.”
Autellus told the Swedish newspaper Expressen, that the Germans built anti-submarine devices to make navigation more difficult for Soviet submarines during World War II. He said the British also built similar structures during World War II.
Autellus said the object was possibly constructed using “double-skinned” concrete which serve as anchor for holding steel wire mesh structures designed to interfere with radar signals. He said that the wire mesh structures might have have eroded away over the years leaving the holes shown on the images provided by the Ocean X team.
