    Moves smooth. Serves its purpose well. Isn't too out of place.
    Could make it more expensive for what it does.
    Still a 10.

    Brilliant! As a bonus it even works in space, don't even have to worry about drifting away anymore!

    Looks pretty cool.
    I would really like if you made some sort of more "professional-looking" military submarine (nazi U-boat for example :P)
    I'm building an underwater military base and such a sub would really fit my playstyle instead of a cheerful yellow submarine ;)

    Their is only so much you can say actually their is tons of stuff to say. The sound effects of this submarine over my surround sound system absolutely amazing had me on the edge of my couch. The rocket propelled cigar torpedoes were totally out of this world. Maybe he left this out as a surprise but these torpedoes are heat seeking torpedoes they seriously find and follow fish I seriously watched as one fish tried to run away went off screen for two seconds so I ctrl mouse buttoned over and watched as the torpedo lay in the final blow. Honestly didn't expect that. The flying aspect absolutely awesome experience. I love this mod since I really want a helicopter mod this mod will have to do. I also enter into my underwater base with this mod. Just wish we had extremely large horizontal/vertical airlock doors so I could park it and decompress and drain the water away then step out onto my base without flooding the submarine. Sorry for the ramble and as with my last review I'd like to add that a boring Nazi submarine like you were thinking of also doing would be awesome and would work with underwater base more than the yellow-submarine.

      I've been thinking of making some big doors to fit the sub & other large vehicles. Now that someone's requested it, will look into making them.

    Okay, so this is the only Mod I have used and it is AWE inspiring! I was thinking though, I know you decided on yellow instead of the Nazi U-Boat / Every submarine colour(almost) but seriously think about U.S.C.M. you maybe a sleek torpedo model with possibly no windows, or very dark windows and to compensate maybe some high beams! Okay and I know this is getting carried away but wouldn't it be cool to be able to move frigate containers around with a sub. So you can load up your underwater base(maybe just maybe this idea is a years off)... I would like to be able to enter into my base with a submarine sometimes! Definitely an awesome work in progress also maybe other models other than the selfish one I described above would greatly increase the value of this already extremely valuable mod.
