SEAL Delivery Vehicle (SDV) teams operate a fleet of mini-subs used by the SEALs for covert underwater operations. SEAL Delivery Vehicle Teams are known to operate the Mk VIII Mod 1 SDV, a black, electrically operated mini-sub that can carry six SEALs on clandestine operations. The mini-sub excels at:

  • Underwater insertion/extraction of SEALs
  • Placing magnetic limpet mines or other explosives to berthed ships
  • Underwater reconnaissance
