View Full Version : Orange Circle on the water

This phenomena was first documented by Dr. Hans Johanson of Berlin in 1939. The spacial energy of the U-boat and the aura of the engines created a circle on the top of the water and the shape of the bow created the pointer. Once the Allies discovered this fact it was easy to hunt down U-boats in the Atlantic. Newer Submarines have a Johanson Circle dissapator which essentially grounds out the circle and arrow effect.

I recall reading and article about either the US or the brits designing a warship out of nothing but ice from the keel to the deck with an outer layering of insulation. This special ice would take years to melt and if hit by a torpedo, the water rushing in would almost instantly freeze and the insulation would aid in sealing the hole(reflex rubber if I remember correctly) and the water that came inside would be frozen and then part of the ship itself. This invention was eventually scrubbed.

The US also used incendiary "bat bombs" against the japanese. Timers set for 24 hours would be attached to bats and would be released via aircraft over or very near japanese positions or hidden camps, during daylight. The bats would scramble for darkness like huts, holes, caves etc then would eventually explode and set everything on fire thus burning out the japanese.

Russia used dog bombs, they would have a bomb strapped to a dog, they would launch treats at tanks, light the fuze and let them loose. This worked when the dogs trained against russian tanks with simulated bombs, but when they tried it against the german tanks, the dogs just sat there wagging their tails as the fuses burned down. The dogs were used to the russian tanks and thought it was wrong to go after german tanks so they just sat there.....smoking. The russians turned and ran and as you guessed it, dogs being loyal to their masters, were in hot pursuit. Nearly an entire russian battalion was wiped out due to this genius idea.

Orange circle thing with an arrow pointing the subs direction? Im thinking its believable.

Joint idea during WWII between the US, brits, and canadians, there was a prototype in some large Canadian lake for about 7 years if i recall before it sank.

It was a special mixture, had a certain name, but it was ice with some kind of wood pulp if i remember correctly.

Ill go see about diggin up the article.

You're talking about Pykrete (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pykrete), 14% sawdust, the rest ice. And the carrier was Project Habbakuk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Habbakuk)

Just thought this would be a good thread to add some war tidbits because I know there are other war junkies out there besides me.

Before you dive have one of your sailors go topside with a can of dark blue spray paint and get rid of the orange circle.
