Colombian Submarine Confiscated: Actually a Submarine

Over the past 10 years, many drug "submarines" have been captured and confiscated. However, most of these were not at all submarines. They were boats which floated with very little above the water line. In other words, they were designed to be difficult to be seen from the air and by ship-borne radar, but they were not actually submarines.

Until now.

This new submarine is 100ft long, can carry four people and up to eight tonnes of cargo, cost an estimated $2 million to build, and... here's the kicker... can travel up to 30ft below the surface.

Pretty damn interesting. Given the history of small and homemade submarines, I would never want to get into this thing, let alone take her down.
