The Cobra underwater demolitions specialists have come a long way since the days when they were trained in shark-infested waters to prove their worth. EELS must now be proficient with sophisticated electronic detection gear, the latest in plastic explosives, and state-of-the-art closed circuit self-contained breathing systems. Of course, failure to pass the high-tech courses could result in a disciplinary dip in the shark tank - and we're not talking about the mechanical sharks. We're talking about the real, live, hungry ones! Eels are also outfitted with razor sharp fins on their suits so they can rip through the thickest hulls.
1. Nautical spear gun with 3-prong, hull puncturing spear
