Will the New Special Ops Mini-Submarine Sink or Swim?|Popular Mechanics

Ever get the feeling that the new car you just bought might not actually be as good as the previous model?

As we reported in July, Special Operations Command has hired Lockheed Martin to provide a miniature submarine for the Navy SEALs: the Dry Combat Submersible (DCS). Capable of carrying eight SEALs, the DCS would be used to infiltrate hostile areas, carrying soldiers to within reach of accessible coastlines. The submersible will be delivered in 2018, answering what SOCOM calls an “urgent need.”
