ive thought about understea combat on several occations, never could come up with anything good. like ever.... and then you make THIS. and im like WOW. your creative as you are talented. i never thought of just modifying the concept of a fighter with sea appropriate fins, jets and usage of seadynamics

well this thing is amphibious
its a air fighter, and can, if need be dive into the water, fold the outboard wingtips and with the pair of Water engines/pods run around underwater:D theres a Bomber too:D I'll post it later tonight
Water is just very thick air...

*stamps the jepray Deviant ID with CERTIFIED AWESOME*
looking forward to your bomber!

i love your stuff, im still working on 3d version of that the battleship you made for that one guy, my other projects have been taking up my time, and everytime i do start on your ship model, i end up getting a computer freeze or something stupid :P im using PAINT.NET to clear out all the secondary details of the design so i can just get an idea of the hull without wistles and bells (and guns...so many guns! :D ), the hull lineart of it basically. im going to make a high (well high for me anyway) poly version and a low poly version. i am however, going to have to slightly.. alter your design for the main artillery guns, as they are now, you couldnt actually make them turn at the customary 45* either direction.

Oooh, can it supercavitate?

it runs a cat or worm drives in those wing pods under water, so no cavitation noise. Its a Silent runner... moved like a fighter underwater, can land and take off in water or off a carrier or ground base. Its interesting ideal, but the payload suffers due to added weight of water engines...

Supercavitation is a technology the Russians developed for torpedoes that allows them to use a rocket motor, giving them speeds of over 300kph underwater. It is an intentional cavitation that creates a sheath of air around the vessel, drastically reducing the friction of the water.

Supercavitation is where water bubbles around the craft, reducing resistance and enabling it to move faster than sound travels under water, which..given that most craft rely upon sonar, is a stealth bonus!

Not if the commissioner didn't...*Grins evilly*

Might keep it in mind for any submersible stuff you do, though it's most useful for sub-launched missiles and torpedoes.

Moving faster than sound, underwater, makes you effectively invisible, yes, but it also means you cannot see where you are going if you use sonar.

true... more likely the missiles it carries will have it...
