thunderball mini-subs

Thought this was interesting. Shows some pics on making one of the thunderball mini-subs. The manta ray was a cowling over an Italian made (Cos.Mo.S) Seahorse-II two-man SDV:

You can poke around to other pages like the history of Seal delivery wet-subs:

“A skin diver is a fellow who pulls on a pair of fancy swimming trunks, some rubber fins, a diving mask and canvas gloves, then fills his lungs with air and noses down into the ocean looking for two fisted trouble.”

or... as they were originally known SWIMMER Delivery Vehicles. Just an FYI, when referring to The Teams, it's SEAL (all caps)

Sutton has a ton of historical sub stuff, fun site to poke around.
