German UFOs – Secret Weapons of the Second World War

P48 – 64  – from the book ‘UFOs: Nazi Secret Weapon?’ by Ernst Zundel et al

Why were the secret weapons not used in the battle for Germany’s survival? Many of them were, but there was a standard requirement in German military thinking that demanded that for every new weapon introduced, a defence had to be introduced with it. A sensible safety measure in case any weapon ever fell into enemy hands which could then quickly be copied and used against Germany. Thus, when radar was introduced, radar jamming devices were introduced at the same time. When fast jet planes were brought in, (200 kilometers faster than the fastest Allied planes in existence or in the planning stage), ground to air defence missiles were concurrently introduced.

It might interest the reader to have a look at this array of advanced technology, unparalleled in
variety and ingenuity even to this day. The photographs shown here are of operational types only. Some of the “planned” hardware is also shown in order to give the reader a quick look at how far ahead National Socialist Germany was in 1945 compared with the rest of the world.

Intercontinental missiles were already a fact and although stolen by both the U.S. and Russia after the surrender in 1945 it took them another 15 years to come up to the German level, even though they were using many of the “captured” scientists. This brings us back to the actual story of the U.F.O. mystery.

Germany had U.F.O.’s as early as 1940. We find photographic proof of the existence of flying
prototype models. Reproduced here are two photographs of two different U.F.O. designs, both operating on the electromagnetic propulsion method of Victor Schauberger, (also the inventor of the implosion motor), and produced by the Kertl firm of Vienna IV, which was then part of the greater German Reich.

These are the famous smokeless, soundless, Schauberger Models. Note similarity to real U.F.O.

Below are reproduced a series of actual photographs of a U.F.O. photographed in flight over New Jersey in 1958 by George J. Stock of Passiac, N.J., courtesy August C. Roberts Wayne, N.J. The similarity to one of the Schauberger models is self-evident and is conclusive enough proof to most people of the German origin of the U.F.O.’s. However there is more.

U.F.O.’s were seen by American and German night fighters and bomber pilots over Germany in
1943-45. The Americans called them Kraut meteors and were scared of them. Even the top brass knew about their existence, as is indicated in the book entitled “Der Weltraum Ruckt Uns Naher”, Blanvalet Verlag, by Major Keyhoe the famous U.F.O. investigator, Chapter III. Major Keyhoe says the U.S. infiltrated 600 scientists into Bohemia, in tank crew uniforms, in 1945, to check over some of the U.F.O. Bases.

Following is a letter from a lady, still alive and personally known to the authors which we have
translated into free English. The lady attests to having been one of the first and top secretaries in the S.S. Reichssicherheitshauptamt working in the anteroom of one of the most powerful men in Nazi Germany — S.S. Amtschef III Ohlendorf (the subject of many books and articles since the end of the war). The lady letter writer states that one day in 1938 a young scientist came into her office clutching a document, neatly typed and comprised of about 60 pages. The young man said that the contents were a revolutionary new approach to the aircraft propulsion problem. He proceeded excitedly to explain to the young lady some of his ideas. He said he hoped for active help and protection from the S.D. (Security Service) in doing experimental work on his project, since both Himmler and Ohlendorf were absent from Berlin at the time, she took the document into safe keeping, storing it in her safe. This document was later handed to Himmler and Ohlendorf. After reading it they contacted aircraft and propulsion experts. A number of top secret conferences were called but with no positive results. The experts scoffed at the revolutionary proposals advanced by the young man, which amongst other things, contained such suggestions as the creation of a vacuum in front of the disc shaped aircraft into which the craft could then move, without effort, at incredible speeds. Also proposed was exploitation of the earth’s natural magnetism along with a steering mechanism based on internal polarity shift.

To the young secretary all this seemed very difficult to comprehend and only because it was so
totally out of her usual line of work does she remember all of the above details. The closed minds of the consulted experts annoyed her, it was their arrogant impossible and never which stuck in her mind. Being a convinced National Socialist, she had known of the Fuhrer’s abhorrence of the stuffy traditionalists and reactionaries with which Germany, especially, seems to be plaqued? The project was still being discussed when the young man re-appeared, and in a very happy frame of mind asked for the return of the documents. He told our correspondent that he had found someone else to support and finance his research and experiments, even with plant facilities to produce them.

Years later, after the war, when the U.F.O. sightings were the topic of the day, she mentioned
the above to a friend, a man, who had been a Kriminal Kommisar (Criminal Commisar similar to the American G man of old) in Austria during the war (then a part of the greater German Reich). He was not at all surprised but on the contrary he remembered having received a top secret telex order, issued by Berlin Headquarters, requesting that the people’s reactions to “strange flying objects” be monitored, and that these flying objects would be appearing in the skies over the entire Reich. There would be no need to sound the alarms for they belonged to Germany. The date? 1943-44. In due course, the flying objects appeared. The German fighters thought they were American, the Allies thought they were German secret weapons. The Americans nick-named them appropriately enough, “Kraut meteors”. (Keyhoe) There is one final aspect of the lady’s letter which seems particularly significant. While in Vienna she saw a letter published in a large daily newspaper by a well-known Diplom Ingenieur from Vienna’s fashionable suburb, Baden, and this letter stated:—“We built flying saucers in Bohemia and Sudetenland. My friend
was one of the test pilots for these devices. One day in 1943 the entire plant was dismantled and shipped by freight train to destinations unknown. From that day to this, I have never heard from my friend, the test pilot. Incidentally, orders for this dismantling came directly from Adolf Hitler”.

A most incredible development. Were the flying saucers not used in combat because the Germans had not come up with the required anti-weapon? Or were they, perhaps, not available because of the rare metal needed in large enough quantities to make the required impact? Or were they used and so devastatingly that no survivors were around to tell the story? Once again, a letter and some suppressed books written by a German engineer, can help us fill the gap. We reproduce excerpts from a letter received by the authors from divided Berlin, Germany. The letterhead of the correspondent states he is a Diplom Ingeneur who seems to head a private spaceflight research organisation in Germany and Switzerland. He is the author of several books about spaceflight and we reproduce the cover of one. The title translated into English is: “German Spaceflight Since 1934”, with a sub-title of “A Troublesome Book”. In it are many engineer’s drawings of weird and strange-looking craft the like of which we have never seen anywhere before. Strange names are given to these contraptions. One model especially merits to be reproduced here for your evaluation. The claim is made that the author launched a rocket to the moon in the early thirties, propelled by a light conversion power plant. In other words, the rocket was propelled by sunlight transformed into energy. Certainly, a revolutionary concept.

In a series of letters we have received, Prof. Dr. Phillips, claims to have been a wartime comrade (W.W.1) of Adolf Hitler, and that they kept in close touch and that Hitler was kept fully informed about all the research and that he, Hitler himself, entrusted Phillips with critical missions, in rare cases. He further states that to this day he has in a bank safety depository a special pass of the Fuhrer giving him sweeping authority. See photocopy of excerpt of letter.

Two other points mentioned in different letters are relevant to our story. Dr. Phillips who speaks
several languages, and amongst them Russian, claims to have been employed by the Russians in the very “collecting camps” the Soviets had set up for screening German scientists for use in their own weapons development. His linguistic abilities made him “Chief Screener”. If all this is true, then one can safely assume that Hitler’s friend would find ways and means to ensure that top grade scientists did not fall into the hands of the Soviets at least in this instance. Prof. Dr. Phillips claims he knows exactly who went where and many other details. Dr. Phillips also men-lions his experimental work during the war with the practical use of death rays.

However, there are also other sources available for the U.F.O. verification. There is the best-selling book already in its 5th Edition called “Die Deutschen Geheimwaffen des Zweiten Weltkrieges und ihre Weiterentwicklung” by Rudolf Lusar, published by Lehmann Verlag of Munich, West Germany. A small English edition exists but seemingly is suppressed. One of the authors of this book obtained just one copy from the author himself. The late Rudolf Lusar had been a Luftwaffe Major, an inventor and engineer, he had been employed during W.W. II in the patent and experimental section of the Reichsluftwaffen Ministerium in Berlin. In this book Lusar describes some pretty far-out, highly-advanced technology on rocket torpedoes, submarine fired ballistic missiles, Flying People (see photo) and very detailed information on the flyinq saucer programme. Shown here are photographs of engineering drawings, top and front view, along with excerpts of his descriptions.

Flying Disc

Flying Saucers

Flying saucers have been whirling round the world since 1947. suddenly turning up here and
there, soaring in and darting off again at unprecedented speed with flames encircling the rim of
the saucer’s disc. They have been located by radar, pursued by lighters and yet nobody has so far succeeded in establishing the existence of such a “flying saucer” or managed to ram or shoot one down. The public, even the experts, are perplexed by an ostensible mystery or a technical miracle. But slowly the truth is coming out that even during the war German research workers and scientists made the first moves in the direction of these “flying saucers”. They built and tested such near miraculous contraptions. Experts and collaborators in this work confirm that the first projects, called “flying discs”, were undertaken in 1941. The designs for these “Hying discs” were drawn up by the German experts Schriever, Habermohl and Miethe, and the Italian Bellonzo. Habermohl and Schriever chose a wide-surface ring which rotated round a fixed, cupola-shaped cockpit. The ring consisted of adjustable wing-discs which could be brought into appropriate position for the take-off or horizontal flight, respectively. Miethe developed a discus-shaped plate of a diameter of 42 m. in which adjustable jets were inserted. Schriever and Habermohl, who worked in Prague, took off with the first “flying disc” on February 14, 1945. Within three minutes they climbed to an altitude of 12,400 m. and reached a speed of 2,000 km./h. in horizontal flight (!). It was intended ultimately to achieve speeds of 4,000 km./h.

Extensive preliminary tests and research were necessary before construction could be started.
Because of the great speed and the extraordinary heat stress, special heat-resisting materials had to be found. The development, which cost millions, was almost completed at the end of the war. The then existing models were destroyed but the plant in Breslau where Miethe worked fell into the hands of the Russians who took all the material and the experts to Siberia, where work on these “flying saucers” is being successfuly continued.

Schriever escaped from Prague in time; Habermohl, however, is probably in the Soviet Union,
as nothing is known of his fate. The former designer Miethe is in the United States and, as far as is known, is building “flying saucers” for the United States and Canada at the A. V. Roe works. Years ago, the U.S. Air Force received orders not to fire at “flying saucers”. This is an indication of the existence of American “flying saucers” which must not be endangered. The flying shapes so far observed are stated to have diameters of 16, 42, 45 and 75 m. respectively and to reach speeds of up to 7,000 km./h. (?). In 1952 “flying saucers” were definitely established over Korea and Press reports said they were seen also during the NATO manoeuvres in Alsace in the autumn of 1954. It can no longer be disputed that “flying saucers” exist. But the fact that their existence is still being denied, particularly in America, because United States developments have not progressed far enough to match the Soviet Union’s, gives food for thought. There also seems some hesitation to recognise that these novel “flying saucers” are far superior to conventional aircraft—including modern turbo￾jet machines—that they surpass their flying performance, load capacity and manoeuvrability and thereby make them obsolete.*

According to Lusar, of the many scientists who worked on U.F.O. projects only one of these
was found, a man named Miethe, and he was from the team who worked outside Prague. His
whereabouts and movements are known. He worked in the early fifties for the A. V. Roe Company in Malton, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto, Canada. This man Miethe is the originator of a genuine flying saucer, which was produced by Avro on contract to the U.S. Air Force.

See photograph below — compare similar shape and concept with Lusar’s drawings. Of
particular interest is the propeller fan blade arrangement. The craft pictured above was shown to the press on the ground only, not in flight. However, we reprint a photograph or what is purported to be a photograph which originated with the Royal Canadian Airforce in Ottawa, Negative File No. T.P. 1256C, unit 2 Rd. The craft looks similar to the Miethe-designed Avro saucer, that has never been seen air borne by anyone. This was reprinted by the now defunct Toronto Telegram, once the second largest daily newspaper in Toronto.


The much-maligned Avro Disc, built with the collaboration of the German scientist, Miethe.
Because it has never been seen “flying” does not mean it has not “flown” when the press were not around. Design clearly employs the “Vertikalzugschraube” experimented with by Miethe and his colleagues in Germany, or at least elements of the idea.

The authors contacted the defence department in Ottawa for permission to re-print the photograph. The file was missing and it was reported that no trace could be found of anything, negatives or prints. So that leaves the big question — why didn’t Miethe’s saucer fly? Or did it fly and we were not told the truth? Or, was Miethe a victim of the previously described German policy of only letting an individual know as much as he needed to know, to fulfill his task? No more and no less! Did he purposely sabotage the American Flying Saucer? Of greater importance, where is Miethe today? I doubt that we will ever know.

The A.V. Roe aircraft company was driven into bankruptcy in 1958-59 by the then Prime Minister of Canada — John Diefenbaker. Thousands of top flight scientists were overnight out of work and the cream of them were quickly hired by Boeing, General Dynamics and others. Miethe and the flying saucer he helped to build have vanished without a trace!

The Soviets too got into the act during the height of the UFO craze in the late 50’s and early 60’s. Since the Communists have ruled Russia, they have invented everything or reinvented everything, from gunpowder to spaceflight! To assure that credit goes where it is due, reproduced here is the Soviet flying saucer. A poor photograph of a canvas-covered circular-shaped wingless aircraft, the type the Germans experimented with around 1935 and in concept similar to the United States all-wing bomber. Surely, if the Soviet’s had captured, as had been feared for some time, the German UFO teams and their factories, they could have come up with something a little better! And so again, we must conclude there is a missing link.

Where are the flying saucer teams now? Or better still, to where did they go after they left
Germany? It is almost a certainty that they did leave Germany. There are a number of possibilities, but allpoint in the general direction of the Southern Hemisphere.

Essentially, Bar-Zohar corroborates Michael X and Mattern. “The Avengers” page 110 111 Excerpts below.

When the fighting ended in Berlin, some men of the Russian Fifth
Army came across a burned-out tank at Spandau, and lying near it was the
body of a man wearing a long leather jacket In one of the jacket pockets they
found a small book which turned out to be the diary of Martin Bormann, the
Fuehrer’s deputy and one of the most astute of the Nazi Party leaders.

The dead man was not Bormann—this was very soon verified—but an
entry in the diary, in Bormann’s handwriting, said “May 1, attempt to break

A telegram that the Reichsleiter had neglected to destroy was found
in his office: “April 22, 1945. Agree with proposal of dispersal in southern
zone beyond the ocean. Signed, Bormann.”

These two sentences clearly conveyed Bormann’s intentions to flee to
South America and showed that he had begun to put his plans into effect on
May 1.

There was Peron, Hitler’s admirer, in power in Argentina. It is a well known fact that huge tracts
of land had been bought up by Nazi money and interests. An interesting aside is that Germany’s top fighter-bomber pilot Hitler’s favourite, (Stuka divebomber ace with over 2,500 sorties and over 500 tanks and 140 planes to his credit), Hans Ulrich Rudel, worked on secret aircraft development schemes for Juan Peron after the war. He met Peron personally on several occasions and the team around Rudel, Tank and Horten did produce a very fast jet fighter plane for Argentina. See photographs. From this fact it is possible to deduct that both the facilities as well as the talent were available and did not lay idle. Rudel by the way has made over 75 trips to South America since then!!! What for?

German Scientist Produced this jet for Peron.
