The USMC Is Interested In This Crazy Speedboat That Transforms Into A Submarine
It sounds like something straight out of a James Bond movie or an episode of G.I. Joe. U.S. Marines arrive on a beach inside a speedboat that transforms into a submarine. But this isn’t a trailer for a new Hollywood blockbuster or a page out of a Batman comic. It’s part of real life U.S. Navy and Marine technology demonstration.
On April 17, 2017, the two services kicked off the Ship-To-Shore Maneuver Exploration and Experimentation (S2ME2) Advanced Naval Technology Exercise 2017 (ANTX17) at Camp Pendleton in California. Defense contractors joined U.S. military personnel to demonstrate more than 100 different pieces of high-tech equipment, including a unique craft called the HyperSub.
