The Aquatic Scout Ship was a sleek, torpedo-shaped vessel used by the Galactic Empire.
It had a pair of stabilizer fins, carried no weapons, and was capable of traveling as far down as five kilometers below the surface. Each submarine was equipped with long-range sensors, manipulator arms, a tow cable, and storage areas to hold specimens and samples.
These vessels were used by IML to search ore in Alluuvia and were usually crewed by scientists and technicians. A Imperial Mobile Base in the planet carried army troopers, IML personnel and seven aquatic scout ships, although it had room for fifteen.
