A lot of ships went down in the Baltic in WW II. The Germans built their Submarines (U Boats) and other Vessels in their shipyards in Kiel which is a Baltic Port. Kiel was bombed extensively during the war and a lot of U-Boats went down in the Baltic. As a matter of fact, Hitler built a Memorial to the fallen U-Boat sailors which still stands at the entrance to the Harbor at Kiel and German Sailors still stand at attention on deck as they pass the memorial. There is a military cemetary in Kiel where half of it is dedicated to Graman Sailors lost in the war and the other half to British Aviators lost bombing the German Sailors. I will bet that what they are detecting at the bottom of the Baltic is a lost WW II Vessel.

Discussed here last August.

I think speculation is that it's a prototype of the round Russian battleship, Novgorod.

To me, it doesn’t even look like an “object”.
It looks like a “formation”.

That looks like the remnants of the S.S. Tuit.

Often referred to as the Round Tuit.

I hope you two are satisfied, destroying a good speculative thread with actual facts.

It’s just another Russian nuke sub with a damaged screen door.

Wow, that thing must have been almost impossible to steer or control.

Neither Yahoo, CNN nor I got the memo. Thanks for linking the prior thread.

Apparently the recoil from the main guns caused the ship to spin.

From Wikipedia:

Novgorod and her near-sister Rear Admiral Popov proved poorly designed in use. They pitched and rolled excessively, even in moderate seas.[2] They were slow, poorly maneuverable, and vulnerable to plunging fire. Worst though, was that the off-axis recoil of the guns would impart a centrifugal rotation to the ship.[2] In operational use, these ships would have to throw their single rudder hard over during firing, to act as "water brakes". This severely restricted the aiming and rate-of-fire of the main guns.

I saw this on the Fox News page over a year ago. It appears to be the wreck of the Novgorod.
