Pentagon Developing Flying Aquatic Military Vehicle

Newscast Media -- The Pentagon is embarking on a project that will develop a submarine-like vehicle capable of becoming airborne.  The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), plans to build a military vehicle that can hover over the water until it approaches its target before disappearing under sea to avoid detection. It would then sneak closer in form of a submarine before striking its target, then flying back to its base.


The project has been in development since 2008, and DARPA is now ready to fund it. However, the problem that has to be overcome is, the vehicle has to be both hydro and aerodynamic.  It has to be solid enough to withstand underwater pressure, but also has to be light enough to become airborne.  Several outside developers have submitted their blueprints that are currently under consideration by the Pentagon before funding can be released.   Add comments>>
