S.M.U.V. - Don't leave the underwater habitat without it!
About this creation
I'd been itching to build a submersible for ages but where I'm just starting out on MOCpages, my LEGO surplus is still largely incomplete so I've done the best with the components I had to hand.

The SMUV (submersible multipurpose utility vehicle) is a deep water search craft that can be utilised in many aquatic situations.
The crew of two (one to pilot and one to navigate/operate equipment are able to tackle pretty much any underwater task with the SMUV.
One of the SMUV's main uses is wreck investgation and due to the super polymer shell, can withstand great depths.

The SMUV has a bank of four super luminous sodium spotlights, two multiflex retractable end efecttors with manipulating pincers at the ends and it is also equipped with a retractable scoop for underwater excavation.

The pontoons house the four way prop system and the bailout resivours have been shifted upwards so that they now sit amidship.

Take alook and let me know what you think.
Cheers!

Very impressive. I like it a lot. I agree with Bart, you should make a big command center inside. That would be awesome. Keep up the great creations.
