    Top-secret US aquatic drone weapon 'Manta Ray' is spotted on Google Maps

    WASHINGTON — A possible top-secret U.S. military weapon, a stealth submarine drone named the "Manta Ray," appears to have been inadvertently revealed in Google Maps satellite images of a naval base in California. This unusual sighting raises questions about whether the exposure was accidental or intentional, given that sensitive military equipment is typically obscured in public satellite imagery.

    The images show what seems to be a prototype of the advanced underwater drone, which is designed to lie dormant on the ocean floor for extended periods before remote activation. The discovery has sparked speculation among defense analysts and observers about the strategic intentions behind the visibility of such a secretive project on widely accessible platforms.

    The U.S. military has not commented on the images or the existence of the Manta Ray, maintaining a typical stance on matters of national security and defense technology. This incident highlights the complex interplay between security, surveillance technology, and public accessibility in the digital age.
