Single seater submersible.
2 Attachment(s)
Well, this little fishy is a personal project of mine as part of a modular craft. The single cockpit is the only real universal thing here, but you have a drive core at the center with dorsal and ventral attachments to it with the auxiliary systems and accessories, then a port and starboard attachment for the maneuvering systems.

Since this is a submersible, there are forward, mid and aft dive planes plus two rudders center-line aft and one on the ventral side. Since this is a WIP, two sets of images are shown, one with the various angles shown, and another with the drive system I'm taking to call a drum engine for lack of a better term. Two sets of two drums that counter rotate against each other for balanced thrust.

One of the things that this build is going to feature other than a separate and self contained cockpit pod, is multiple poses in case the pod needs to be ejected. The port and starboard sections are actually hinged with a 10 degree movement so that the bow planes are actually a jaw like motion to allow the pod clear egress in case of emergency.

Are you looking to rig it? Looks like lots of nice moving parts to me...

Aye, that I am. Everything that can be rigged will. Everything from the drive systems, to the controls.

Interesting design. I assume there's a prop on the back end?

Not really a 'prop' in the traditional sense, but a drum fan for propulsion.
