Secret Flying Saucer Technology - Attempts to Develop Advanced Aircraft or Spacecraft
In science fiction, conspiracy theory, and underground comic
books, there are a number of stories or claims regarding Nazi UFOs.
They relate supposedly successful attempts to develop advanced aircraft
or spacecraft in Nazi Germany prior to and during World War II, and
further claim the post-war survival of these craft in secret underground
bases in Antarctica, South America or the United States, along with
their Nazi creators.
These accounts appear from as early as 1950, likely inspired by
historical German development of specialized engines such as Viktor
Schauberger's "Repulsine" around the time of WWII.
Elements of the claims have been widely incorporated into various works
of fictional and purportedly non-fictional media including video games
and documentaries, often mixed with more substantiated information.
The earliest non-fiction assertion of Nazi flying saucers
appears to have been an article which appeared in the Italian newspaper Il
Giornale d'Italia in early 1950. Written by Professor Giuseppe
Belluzzo, an Italian scientist and a former Italian Minister of
National Economy under the Mussolini regime, it claimed that "types of
flying discs were designed and studied in Germany and Italy as early as
1942". Belluzzo also expressed the opinion that "some great power is
launching discs to study them".
The same month, German engineer Rudolf
Schriever gave an interview to German news magazine Der
Spiegel in which he claimed that he had designed a craft powered
by a circular plane of rotating turbine blades 49 ft (15 m) in
He said that the project had been developed by him and his
team at BMW's Prague works until April 1945, when he fled
His designs for the disk and a model were stolen from
his workshop in Bremerhaven-Lehe in 1948 and he was convinced that Czech
agents had built his craft for "a foreign power".
In a separate interview with Der Spiegel in October 1952 he said that
the plans were stolen from a farm he was hiding in near Regen on May
There are other discrepancies between the two interviews
add to the confusion.
In 1953, when Avro Canada announced that it was developing the
VZ-9-AV Avrocar, a circular jet aircraft with an
estimated speed of 1,500 mph (2,400 km/h), German engineer Georg Klein
claimed that such designs had been developed during the Third Reich.
Klein identified two types of supposed German flying disks:
A non-rotating disk developed at Breslau by V-2 rocket engineer Richard Miethe, which was
captured by the Soviets, while Miethe fled to the US via France, and
ended up working for Avro.
Aeronautical engineer Roy
Fedden remarked that the only craft that could approach the
capabilities attributed to flying saucers were those being designed by
the Germans towards the end of the war.

which consisted of a ring of moving turbine blades around a fixed
Klein claimed that he had witnessed this craft's first manned
flight on 14 February 1945, when it managed to climb to 12,400 m
(40,700 ft) in 3 minutes and attained a speed of 2,200 km/h (1,400 mph)
in level flight.
Fedden (who was also chief of
the technical mission to Germany for the Ministry of Aircraft
Production) stated in 1945:
||I have seen enough of their
designs and production plans to realize that if they (the Germans) had
managed to prolong the war some months longer, we would have been
confronted with a set of entirely new and deadly developments in air
Fedden also added that the Germans were working on a number of very
unusual aeronautical projects, though he did not elaborate upon his
In 1959, Captain Edward J. Ruppelt, editor of the U.S.A.F.'s Project Blue Book wrote:
||When WWII ended, the Germans
had several radical types of aircraft and guided missiles under
The majority were in the most preliminary stages, but they
were the only known craft that could even approach the performance of
objects reported to UFO observers.
The Bell UFO was among the first flying objects
to be connected with the Nazis. It apparently had occult markings on it
and it was also rumored to have been very similar to a German Document
about a vertical take off aircraft.
The Bell supposedly crashed
in Pennsylvania in the 50's. The same month, German engineer Rudolf
Schriever gave an interview to German news magazine Der Spiegel in which
he claimed that he had designed a craft powered by a circular plane of
rotating turbine blades 49 ft (15 m) in diameter.

Nazi UFO Conspiracy
are claims that an Op secret development unit of the SS occult "Order
of the Black Sun" was tasked with researching alternative energies to
make the Third Reich independent of scarce fuel oil for war production.
Their work included developing alternative energies and fuels.
This group developed by 1939 a revolutionary electro-magnetic-gravitic
engine which improved Hans Coler's free energy machine into an energy
Konverter coupled to a Van De Graaf band generator and Marconi vortex
dynamo(a spherical tank of mercury) to create powerful rotating
electromagnetic fields that affected gravity and reduced mass.
It was designated the Thule Triebwerk (Thrustwork, aka Tachyonator-7
drive) and was to be installed in to a Thule designed disc. Since 1935
the Thule Gesellschaft (Society) had been scouting for a remote,
inconspicuous, under developed testing ground for such a craft.
Thule found a location in Northwest Germany that was known as (or possibly designated as) Hauneburg.
At the establishment of this testing ground and facilities the SS E-IV
unit simply referred to the new Thule disc as a war product- the
"H-Gerat" (Hauneburg Device).
For wartime security reasons the name was shortened to Haunebu in 1939
and was briefly designated RFZ-5 along with Vril's machines once the
Hauneburg site was abandoned in favor of the more suitable Vril Arado
Brandenburg aircraft testing grounds. The early Haunebu I craft of which
two prototypes were constructed were 25 meters in diameter, had a crew
of eight and could achieve the incredible initial velocity of 4,800km/h,
but at low altitude.
Further enhancement enabled the
machine to reach 17,000 km/h. Flight endurance was 18 hours. To resist
the incredible temperatures of these velocities a special armor called
Victalen (Frozen Smoke) was pioneered by SS metallurgists specifically
for both the Haunebu and Vril series of disc craft.
The Haunebu I had a double hull of Victalen. (Frozen Smoke developed in
the 30's) The Experimental KSK Gun the early models also attempted to
test out a rather large experimental gun installation- the twin 60 mm
KSK (Kraft Strahl Kanone, Strong RayCannon) which operated off the
Triebwerk for power.
It has been suggested that the ray from this weapon made it a laser, but
it was not. The Germans called it an"anachronism" gun- not belonging to
that time period or out of place.
When a Vril 7 was downed by the Russians in 1945 a similar underbelly
mounted KSK gun was destroyed with debris recovered from the battle
Postwar the strange metal balls and tungsten spirals that made up the weapon could not be identified.
But recently it has been speculated that the Triebwerk-connected balls
formed cascade oscillators that were connected to a long barrel-shrouded
transmission rod wrapped in a precision tungsten spiral, or coil to
transmit a powerful energy burst suitable to pierce up to 4 in (100 mm)
of enemy armor.
The heavy gun installation, however, badly destabilized the disc and in
subsequent Haunebu models lighter MG and MK cannon were supposedly
installed. The Series Prototypes The Haunebu I first flew in 1939 and
both prototypes made 52 test flights. In 1942, the enlarged Haunebu II
of 26 meters diameter was ready for flight testing.
This disc had a crew of nine and could also achieve supersonic flight of
6,000 to 21,000 km/h with a flight endurance of 55 hours. Both it and
the further developed 32 meter diameter Haunebu II Do-Stra had heat
shielding of two hulls of Victalen. The craft were constructed and
tested between 1943-44.
Pictures of UFOs believed to have been designed by the Nazi German scientists during the second world war.
The craft made 106 test flights.
By 1944, the perfected war model, the Haunebu II Do-Stra
(Dornier-STRAtospharen Flugzeug/Stratospheric Aircraft) was tested. Two
prototypes were built.
These massive machines, several stories tall, were crewed by 20 men.
They were also capable of hypersonic speed beyond 21,000 km/h.
The SS had intended to produce the machines with tenders for both
Junkers and Dornier but in late 1944/early 1945 Dornier was chosen. The
close of the war, however, prevented Dornier from building any
Yet larger still was the 71 meter diameter Haunebu III. A lone prototype was constructed before the close of the war.
It was crewed by 32 and could achieve speeds of 7,000 to 40,000 km/h. It
had a triple Victalen hull. It is said to have had a flight endurance
of 7 to 8 weeks. The craft made 19 test flights. This craft was to be
used for evacuation work for Thule and Vril in March 1945. There are
claims that a Haunebu IV craft was built as well.
Nazi UFO technology has
long been a conspiracy for quite some time. Whether or not it is true
is hard to say but it is possible that the Nazi's did come up with some
sort of aircraft which would be similar to UFO technology, possibly even
from aliens or learning from an existing UFO from reverse engineering.
There is much speculation in this matter and the complete truth will
probably never come forward.
