A World War II-era Soviet submarine has been found on the bottom of the Tallinn Bay by an Estonian hydrographical ship.
“The object was marked on the sea maps as an unidentified obstacle,” said the press service of the Water Transport Department. “The expedition discovered it was actually a submarine.”
The scientists took beautiful photos of the sub that helped identify it as a Soviet Malyutka type submarine, said Estonian underwater archaeologist Vello Mäss.
The submarine is lying 65 meters below the surface, with a frame preserved as it was back in the 1940s.
“Looks like it wasn’t damaged by a blast or something,” Mäss said. “The sub’s frame is perfectly fine. We hope divers will soon examine it.”
This is not the first historic discovery made in the Baltic Sea in recent years. In August 2011, archeologists came across another Soviet submarine. Specialists suggested that the wreck could be the Soviet Shchuka-class submarine which sunk during maneuvers in 1958.
In July 2011, a team of Swedish explorers detected the alleged remains of a UFO in the Baltic Sea. Sea surveyors said they found what can only be described as the wreckage of a crashed space ship, like the “Millennium Falcon” from “Star Wars.” Photos of the ship immediately went viral on the internet, gathering thousands of clicks from UFO lovers.
