I don't like the fact that they are pedal powered but I am sure we can easily adapt these craft to suit our needs in the struggle against the cephalopod. Maybe some kind of electric shock thingie if they grab onto it. Definately will need to be able to fire multiple harpoons, that's a given. I do like the two person design and the compact nature of the craft. They will be easy to park in the Cave of Cool.
"A pedal-powered submarine capable of diving up to 30 metres has been developed by a Russian company. The craft can be powered by two people with no specialist training and moves at about walking pace. Its designers say this will give occupants “spectacular underwater views”. Apart from two sets of pedals, controls are limited to a steering wheel and a few buttons to make operating the submarine as simple as possible."
