The Rover (graphic novel)

The Rover is small submersible craft used by the Nekton Family for deep-sea exploration. It is capable of diving even deeper than the Aronnax, and can fit into the small trenches and ravines inaccessible to the Aronnax. The two front pods houses a pair of mechanical arms and hands that retracts while not in use. It is fitted with cameras all around the craft and bright halogen lights.

The Rover is 3 meters long (10 feet), or 4.6m (15") with arms extended, and has a displacement of 1 ton. It can accommodate up to four people, with the two front seats being able to control the submersible.
