Motto: "We will swim through ANYTHING!"
The UNDERTOW are part of the Naval branch of DESTRO's IRON GRENADIER army. They perform acts of espionage and sabotage, in order to generate business for the M.A.R.S. (Military Armaments Research Systems) Corporation. These elite frogmen are specially trained to function and fight in the murky, polluted waters that clog busy industrial and military waterfronts. Each member is organically conditioned against hostile biological agents and infections. Their wetsuits are made of a nontoxic, anti-corrosive material and coated with silicone to repel oil slicks. They are proficient with planting mines and other explosive devices, as well as using an Underwater Delivery Vehicle (UDV) to torpedo targets.
As part of their extensive training, the UNDERTOW OFFICER requires each recruit to swim through a tank of voracious barracudas. Only those with the speed, strength, and equal viciousness survive and make it to graduation. This makes these underwater specialists almost impossible to defeat in their own environment!
No variations of Undertow (v5) are known to exist.
