The future’s looking fishy for underwater warfare

The future’s looking fishy for underwater warfare
A series of futuristic submarine concepts which mimic real marine lifeforms has been unveiled by The Royal Navy. These concepts radically change the way underwater warfare could look in 50 years. With a crewed mothership shaped like a manta ray, unmanned eel-like vessels equipped with sensor pods which dissolve on demand to avoid enemy detection, and fish-shaped torpedoes sent to swarm against enemy targets, these concepts aim to inspire the world's future underwater combat environment.
