The latest homemade submarine is also by far the most advanced. Where as previous self made Chinese submarines have been nothing more than a few oil drums welded together, this “Shuguanghao” submarine has a custom hull and even a viewing dome.
Made by Wuhan inventor Zhang Wuyi, the “Shuguanghao” submarine can travel at speeds of up to 20km/h and can stay submerged for 10 hours at a time (this we highly doubt!).
Mr. Zhang tested his creation at a lake in Hubei Province on Tuesday, where it impressed bystanders so much that one wealthy local ordered one on the spot!
