Oh noes... It's our super secret swede slayer sub we've been working on. Now we're busted.
On topic I'd love to see the original image. Maybe get some detail out of it. If it however shows clearly a sub the swedish military might want to
keep it under wraps at least untill the investigation is over. We've had our share of possible subs here and both NATO and Russian air forces cross
our borders regularly.
when you enlarge the photo, you cannot detect water movement, wakes, or waves, coming off of either end of the object. something that size, and moving
however slightly, would create some type of visible water disturbance. even enlarged to 400% i cannot see anything to suggest movement.
That ain't no conventional sub or even unconventional sub. It is too flat along its top. Think in terms of a new type of stealth ship as were the
old civil war Moniter and the Merrimac that barely broke the water's surface, riding almost submerged. That short conning tower is probably
retractable and only used when actual eyesight is needed such as when operating in narrow channels and where other ships and boats may be moving and a
If it takes two months before the Swedish authorities have an answer, we can figure one of two things: After that length of time they figure the
sighing will be forgotten for the most part. Or, two, their intelligence section consists of a forgetful, old spinster with a note pad and a old
rotary dial phone doing the investigation.
Whatever it is looks smallish (in relation to most known military submarine types) for the given distance. Typical nuke subs are about the length of a
destroyer or somewhere about 1/3 the length of an aircraft carrier. They aren't small compared to the WWII stuff. Not to mention nuke subs often need
a lot of cooling water and a shallow draft tends to interfere with that while submerged. So that rules them out.
It's likely a diesel model of some sort... The wake in the picture appears to be on the left, which would put the coning tower on the right. It does
seem like it could be that new Swedish sub, provided you remove all the masts and leave it with a clean coning tower. The military doesn't always
readily admit to things like sea trials, because then you'd get everybody nosing in on their business and doing that spying and intelligence

Norway, The UK, Denmark and Finland but since none is on a heightened alert tells me the sub belongs to Sweden as there is currently no heightened
alert in Sweden.
Remember around 06/07 timeframe when a Russian and Venezualan subs were about 200 miles out of North Carolina's waters? This triggered an alert at The
Pentagon which thank God led to nothing.
