USSR Cold War Submarine De-magnetization Station

Estonia, Along the deserted North-Estonian coastline a dock lays, of which its history will remain obscure to anyone that travels past it, unless a local told its tail. The peculiar lump of cement stranded in the water belonged to the Russian military during the cold war.

“Why then would this station be so special in comparison to the 1600 other Russian military bases along the Estonian waterfront?”

The answer to that was ironically kept secret at the time of use, as it helped conceal monstrous machines that all the world’s generals feared to be attacked by any time, anywhere. Just like every other ruthless killer, she lurks its prey and strikes when least expected.

Under the sea level a submarine de-magnetization station was built. One of the only ways for a radar to signal a submarine is via the earths electromagnetic field, and so when travelling from different parts of the world it is easy for the enemy to pinpoint where this massive scrap of metal is floating. The submarine would rest here inside a massive coil that would charge a high voltage neutralize the ship and thus to no longer be traceable amongst these poles of the earth.
