The only known pictures of I-52 (foreground) and I-53 in the Kure shipyard in Japan
C-3 and I-400 were the designations for a class of submarines built by the Japanese during World War Two. The 1-400 was an underwater aircraft carrier! It could surface, launch three planes and vanish. The !-25 was a football field sized mega-sub designed as a cargo carrier.
An I-400 sub–it could carry small craft and up to three airplanes.
Both could travel from Japan to Germany without surfacing. Only a few of each class were built, although many more were planned. It is not known how many round trips were made by these submarines but it is known that they carried tons of war materiel, gold, rare metals–and mercury to the Nazis. They also carried experts of various kinds to both learn and pass on information about shared weaponry. These men had to lie in their bunks virtually for the entire journey–activity that would ensure they used the least amount of air and oxygen possible. The mercury is of special interest to many researchers. One sub carried 7 tons! This was more than could be used for any conventional purpose by the Germans.
Many theorize that the mercury was destined for the Jonestall Valley where ultra secret programs centered around Die Glocke (The Bell) a device that used massive amounts of mercury in its operation. It has been suggested that the device converted mercury into gold and U-235, fissionable Uranium that could have been used for an atomic bomb.
In “The Watch: The Secret War For the Soul of Germany” I explain how one I-25 was used to bring mercury and a Japanese swordmaster to Germany. The mercury was used to create a power plant for an Antarctic base built by the Nazis. The swordmaster is provided with ancient Roman metals from excavated swords and crucifixions–he uses them to create replicas of the Spear of Destiny for Himmler. One of them them, it is said, replaced the real one in the Viennese museum where the Spear and Austrian crown jewels were returned after the war. One of the most spectacular strikes against the Japanese supply line came on the night of June 22, 1944 when Ultra code intercepts revealed that 1-52, a C-3 cargo sub was to meet U-530 (see earlier blog about the U-530 surrender months after the war ended) in mid Atlantic off the Cape Verde Islands to take on a Enigma code machine and its operators as well as new specialized radar gear. Ship launched American planes attacked the two subs using new acoustic torpedoes. I-530 escaped unharmed–perhaps to carry Hitler or other officials to safety in Argentina. I-52 was struck by at least two torpedoes and sank with everyone on board. It was found in three miles of water by researcher Paul Tidwell in 1995–he hopes to recover $25 million in gold that was aboard the sub.
Paul Tidwell found the I-52 in 1995 — and placed the Rising Sun on the sub out of respect for the 100+ dead it entombs.

A Roman centurion used a spear to pierce the side of Christ during the crucifixion. In later historical times several spears were displayed as the one that was used. Some, obviously, had to be fakes. The one spear thought to be most likely the real one (if it ever did get to Europe) was in a Museum in Vienna when Adolf Hitler was a youthful starving artist there. It is credited with sinister magical powers–and Hitler was transfixed when he first saw it.
Longinus was the centurion who pierced the side of Christ. It is claimed that he was a Teuton, recruited by Rome from the Germanic territories conquered as its legions expanded across Europe. Longinus returned to his homelands and his spear next appears in ancient Nuremberg after having passed through the hands of several great conquerors starting with Constantine. Others such as Heinrich the Fowler, Charlemagne possessed the spear–and in every case died shortly after losing it.
The glory and the deaths gave rise to the magical legend of the spear. It supposedly gave its owner the power to rule the world for as long as they owned it. Story after story is told about how one ruler or another lost the spear–only to die within hours or days. When Napoleon advanced toward Russia, Nuremberg was in his path. In order to prevent it from falling into the French Emperor’s hands, the spear, along with other important historical crown jewels, was taken to Austria for safekeeping.
The Austrians kept it all. The jewels were displayed in the The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and were there when the young Adolf Hitler visited. It is said that he stood in front of the Spear of Destiny for two hours, transfixed and seeing visions of his future.
Years later, when Germany ‘annexed’ Austria in what was called the Anschluss or union, one of the first things Hitler and his occult alter ego Himmler did was to seize the Spear and the other treasures. They were returned to Nuremberg. Ii is believed that Himmler used the Spear in occult rituals–he would often borrow it for months at a time from Nuremberg.
Hitler’s first moments with the Spear of Destiny is a major scene in “The Watch:The Secret War for the Soul of Germany” the novel about the occult influences at work behind Hitler’s rise to power and the strange technologies that Hitler pursued even at the cost of the war itself. Claims have persisted since the end of the war that the spear returned to Austria is a replica. Is it? If so, where is the original? The answer, my answer at least, lies within the pages of “The Watch.”
