Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

(MODS, this the place? Feel free to move!)

DARPA has it: The submergible airplane (or the flying submarine, your choice):

From ARES:

Quote
DARPA is seeking concepts for an aircraft that can clandestinely insert and extract an eight-person special-forces team. The mission is to take off from a runway, fly 1,000nm as a conventional aircraft, fly another 100nm close to the surface, then travel the final 12nm to the coast underwater. Transit should take less than 8 hours, including any time required to land on water and reconfigure from aircraft to submarine - and the vehicle should be able to loiter near the coastline - on or under the surface - for three days in sea state 5. Then return the same way...

UPDATE: By chance today found out the Russkies had a similar project as the one of DARPA I posted about three years ago:

Flying submarine - Russian Concept
