U-boat wreck from ‘Hitler’s Lost Fleet’ found – video

The wreck of the German submarine U-23 was found in the waters of the Black Sea off Istanbul. The vessel, along with five others(U-18, U-19, U-20, U-21 and U-22), is referred to as “Hitler’s Lost Fleet”. All the ships disappeared in the Black Sea during World War II. The ships were found and filmed during the making of a new documentary.

The wreck of the U-23 is located at a depth of 40 metres, less than 4 km off the coast of Turkey, at the height of the popular resort of Agva, located 100 km from Istanbul. This magnificent find fell prey to a diving team during the making of the documentary film “Mavi Tutku”(Blue Passion), produced by Turkish television and the navy.

[blockquote style=”2″]”For a long time we have been developing the topic of German submarines operating in the Black Sea region. It is to them that the documentary film we have been preparing is dedicated. Our production tells not only about the ships, but also about eyewitnesses of those events. The film itself will soon see the light of day,” said director Hakan Aslan[/blockquote].

The discovery was made from the deck of the modern TCG vessel “Akin” (A584), belonging to the Turkish Navy. The main purpose of the vessel is to provide assistance to submarines. ” Akin” is equipped, among others, with a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) with cameras, which can explore depths of up to 1,000 metres. It was with its help that the wreck of the U-23 was found and recorded for the first time.

This is only the second ship of the aforementioned “Hitler’s Lost Fleet” to be found. Early on, in 1994, searchers tracked down the wreck of the U-20, resting at a depth of just 23 metres, off the coast of Karasu. The wreck of the U-19 is also believed to be off the coast of the northern province of Zonguldak, but the exact location of the sinking is still unknown.
