thanks Muttbutt. It's taken years but finally it's out. I may be wrong but I think that it's the only book properly about  SDVs in existence.

Does this work? http://www.amazon.es/Covert-Shores-Special-Missions-Minisubs/dp/1502769492/

I don't think Amazon gives me the option to specify .es, it just says "amazon Europe". Sorry.

Yes it's working fine. Before amazon.es it was possible to shop everywhere: amazon.us, amazon.uk, amazon.fr, amazon.de. Since amazon.es opened I can browse any amazon shop as I did in the past but orders are restricted to amazon.es alone

A personal favorite, the Project 865 Piranha with Sirena-UM SDVs. Drawn in MS Paint and rendered in GIMP.


uch higher resolution and key etc at http://www.hisutton.com/Piranha%20Special%20Forces%20submarine.html

There are rumors that Russia will restart the Piranha program.  ;D

Known unbuilt versions are Piranha-T without lockout which allows greater internal space, Piranha-M (might be incorrect designation) with very different hull form, twin differs like a Lancaster bomber and steerable thrusters near the nose, and Piranha-2 which is just more modern.

Good article on Proteus SDV http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/is-this-semi-autonomous-mini-submarine-the-seals-next-s-1720675827

The headline and speculation is misleading (I was too harsh about that on another forum and now I feel bad) but the info is great. Fantastic boat.

Cool video. I wonder re the pilots bring at the rear when traveling underwater, clearly they must be 100% dependent on sensors.

Also the seating arrangement minimizes crew interaction except by comms.

Article on <<NEW>> Iranian SDV: http://www.hisutton.com/Demystified%20-%20new%20low-profile%20Iranian%20SDV.html

Around this time of year it is usual for Iran to reveal a few more of its super weapons. Scared Defense Week occurs in late September and is accompanied by multiple military parades and static displays. Hidden amidst the dazzling array of missiles and UAVs, Swimmer Delivery Vehicles (SDVs) do not get very much press attention (journalists being widely ignorant of what they even are!???!!!). This year was no different. But on display was a slick 'new' SDV with a low profile hull without any canopy or viewing ports. Here's why it's not actually new, but why it is still interesting. .....
