Astonishing sonar images of what looks like a Star Wars-style UFO could be a top secret Nazi weapon from World War II, naval experts have revealed.
The pictures - taken 300ft under the sea bed off the Swedish coast - seemed to show an object that's a dead ringer for Hans Solo's Millennium Falcon space ship from the sci-fi movies.
But now former Swedish naval officer and WWII expert Anders Autellus has revealed that the structure - measuring 200ft by 25ft - could be the base of a device designed to block British and Russian submarine movements in the area.
"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," explained one expert.
"This device dwarfs anything ever found before and is an important weapons discovery," they added.
Explorer Stefan Hogeborn - who is studying the images for the Ocean X diving team - agreed: "It is a good candidate for the answer to this mystery. The object lies directly underneath a shipping route."
"It would be of enormous weight in steel and concrete. Other Nazi anti-sub anchoring devices were nowhere near as large," he added.
