Pretty clever idea I must adimt. If you think about it, you could actually smuggle many different things in something like that, drugs are just one
possible use for it. Build a handful of them babies and outfit them with some kind of Remote Control or Guidance System and you've got yourself a
pretty covert little operation there!
Given the large amounts of money involved you have to wonder if any of them have thought about purchasing a for real Soviet era diesel/electric
submarine and use it to smuggle directly to the United States? In 2000 a 100 foot submarine made of steel was seized. Who really knows for
Well, I can't really say it would shock me all that much if it did in fact happen. After all some of the more Famous Drug Cartel Kings have been
known to purchase some rather unique and exotic items along with their typical Small Counties, Giant Estates, Planes, Cars, etc.
However, I don't really see them using such an idea as it would require a great deal of money and resources which just doesn't seem profitable.
You'd need trained men who know how to operate a sub. It would be too big to hide and it's not like you can just pull into any old port in a Soviet
Sub and pop the hatch without getting some attention. Plus if you did get caught you'd lose large amounts of 'Product' in one risky venture.
It's much better to send 1000 small packages across various entry points than to send one whole shipment in one shot, ya know.
