The S.H.A.R.C. is the most advanced single-man attack submersible in the world. The Joes, always on the forefront of developing technology, have continually upgraded the S.H.A.R.C. with the latest in communications and weaponry. While the Skystriker is the master of the air, the S.H.A.R.C. is the master of the deep. With its ability to move from water to air and back again, the S.H.A.R.C. is an amazing feat of technology. Even so, it is commonly advised against engaging enemy aircraft in dogfighting, as the S.H.A.R.C. is not nearly as maneuverable in the air as in the water, and can make for an easy target.
