We operated from Western Germany, primarily against the bomber formations that flew ceaselessly overhead. As our best planes and pilots were shot down, the German High Command devised new ways to attack our enemy. We developed a number of new Terror Weapons to use against them, including the suicidal Natter jet rockets.
But one of the least effective was the desperate use of various saucer designs. Early versions of this machine involved small, 6 to 8 meter silver disks, launched by hidden catapults along the flight path of the bombers. These rapidly-moving saucers would approach the formations from the rear, then veer away suddenly because of internal gyroscopes. They never seemed to hit anything, but could be retrieved and launched repeatedly.
Over time, we perfected this system, making the saucers larger and equipping them with jet propulsion and remote TV links, such as we also used on Messerchmidt Me-163 Komets. Since these saucers were unmanned, they were able to maneuver in ways that would have killed a human pilot, and use of remote control gave them the illusion of being guided by human intelligence.
None of these unarmed versions was successful, but you must remember that we used them to strike terror in the minds of the bomber crews, and in that I believe they had some success. They earned the nickname 'Foo Fighters', and our Japanese allies even requested we ship a number of them to the far east, something our leaders were happy to do. In the Pacific they could be launched from boats or small jungle islands, and were used frequently in the desperate last days of the war.
When the end came for us, it was the Americans that arrived at our facility, and they were eager to capture any secret weapons they could find. Some of our officers were aware of the Führer's fascination with legends and the occult, and decided to claim that these terror weapons were the 'technology of the gods', recovered by us in crashed other world vehicles and applied through dedicated German engineering.
We were amazed that the gullible Americans believed us, but they gathered together our entire group and moved us to the United States. Luckily, we had been ordered to destroy all working saucer systems before the allies arrived, and thus all the Americans found were saucer shells and what they believed was the talent to build more of them.
I later learned this Operation Paperclip worked with the OSS and the CIA to bring many important Nazi officers into the service of secret American organizations. Reinhard Gehlen moved his entire Eastern Front espionage organization over, in much the same way we were transplanted. I think that the CIA also captured vast sums of hidden German gold, for when we arrived, large facilities were constructed on our behalf. These are, I believe, still operating US Navy and Air Force bases, parts of which were buried deep beneath the earth to keep our activities hidden.
Of course, we had no idea of how to create the type of technology the Americans expected, but with their support and secrecy, we began a long program of experimentation and testing in the vast deserts of this country.
I moved back and forth between Edwards Air Force Base in California and various airfields in Nevada repeatedly as I was asked to pilot the craft that my German associates constructed. I was one of the few fortunate pilots from the Fatherland who survived the ordeal.
There were other secrets about our activities that I was never told. We understood that it was best if we knew as little as possible, and to this day I too am unsure why our officers kept this effort so secret, arresting and even killing intruders, reporters, and unlucky visitors.
I was moved here, to a small cabin along the Oregon coast, when my eyesight became too poor to continue with this secret program. Here I have remained for the last twenty-three years. This all that I know of this Nazi UFO program, and these facts I swear are true.
