An much more extreme modification, the Morzh mod demonstrates the extent to which the Neo-Soviets have mastered genertic engineering. The morzh phenoclade from the waist up is predominantly human, even if the features are blunt and crude looking. From the waist down, the morzh has more in common with marine mammals than with humans. The legs are fused together into a tail, and the feet are spread out into a tail fin, giving them strength and control moving around underwater. Unlike the rusalka, the morzh mod is designed for deep sea operations, and spending extended amounts of time underwater. Where the Rusalka cannot go much further than 200 meters, a morzh can free dive as deep as 1000 meters, and can do so in freezing temperature water.
There are several hundred Eurasian morzh, but they are all located in arctic seacologies or deep sea operations. In these locations they operate and inspect underwater listening and snooping equipment, spy on ACPS and Coalition underwater facilities, and salvage/loot underwater wrecks.Go to Comment
I got it!!
Podvadom(s). Sounds like podvodoy which means underwater and has it as a prefix. Plus it has dom, house. But it's shortened and also sounds like a word meaning something akin to a deep dark cellar, so becomes slightly more modern and dark humor Russian-y. The Federation just calls them "podvods" and uses numbers for naming the few(?) they know of...
I could see them actually being called Podvadoms if they existed. Back me up on this, Alaknog! ;)
