- "Nobody sits and fries unless they’re religious crazies or something. You remember those Tennad sailors who crewed those little suicide submarines? Ordinary guys. Sane guys. The Indies had to weld the hatches so those poor fuckers couldn’t change their minds. Because most of them did."
- —Lt. Victor Hoffman to Sgt. Evan
During the Pendulum Wars, Tennad sailors piloted these submarines during suicide bombings on COG Navy vessels. The crew was often sealed into the vessel, since they often changed their minds and attempted to escape. During the Siege of Anvil Gate, Lt. Victor Hoffman was skeptical of why Indie vehicles were driving around in clear view of the forts guns, and compared the tactic to the suicide submarines.
