Watch Out Captain Marko Ramius.

Looks like the Pentagon has come up with a sub that can really motor. Named the Underwater Express, hopefully that is just a working title as I don't think that name will strike fear into the hearts of our communist enemies. The sub reportedly can hit speeds of 127 mph. The speeds are attained by putting the sub in a big bubble which reduces the drag on the ship 60-70%. Apparently there are some problems making the bubbles at low speeds but I am sure the kinks will be worked out shortly. Also don't be surprised if PETA tries to scuttle this project claiming sea life won't be able to get out of the way of a ship moving so quickly.

good call on the name, "underwater express" is weak. they should change it to "midnight express" because ain't nobody want to end up in a turkish prison. especially red commie bastards.
