TEPBC R3: US Navy Seals Orca Diver Delivery Vehicle
TEPBC R3: Open-hull, electric driven, fast submersible craft, in scale 1:38
About this creation

*All figures, background props, and harpoon projectile are not part of the entry, they just serve demonstration purposes, so they should not be accounted within 8-brick limit.

*At TLG parts ‘Cockpit 8×16×5 with glass’, ‘Plane end 8×16×7’, ‘Engine turbo ass.’, ‘Spring shooter 1×4×1’, our brick computation is based on Lego Digital Designer, where they are counted as single bricks.

As North Korean Missile Crisis escalated at mid-2018, Operation “Aphrodite” planned by US Navy Seals got the highest priority. It utilized the new “Orca” Diver Delivery Vehicle built at Tacoma Shipyards. The open-hull, electric driven fast submersible craft had the closest possible sonar signature and underwater “first look” to a fully developed female killer whale (Orcinus Orca). It was built mostly from noise-absorbent composite materials, containing as few ferromagnetic parts as possible. The 10.64m (34ft 10.63in) long craft with 5.9 long tons of submerged displacement was able to deliver an 8-member diver commando with their rebreather sets and armament at 30nm range, at 33kn top speed and 26kn sustained dash.

The Orca DDV with 6 Navy Seals and 1 civilian diver onboard was launched from an Ohio-class guided-missile submarine (SSGN) at first light of July 7, 2018, at 25nm east of Wonsan Harbor, North Korea.

A Special Forces Mission Module (SFMM) was attached to the hatch behind the sail of Ohio-class SSGN. Forward part of the pressure hull of SFMM contained the airlock/decompression chamber, while in the rear part there was the hangar, from where Orca DDV was launched sliding backward on launch rails, and exiting through the large sized rear door hatch.

First, Orca DDV rendezvoused with an earlier detected horde of killer whales nearby. Crew started to emit computer-generated noises and female hormone chemicals of killer whales from board, to lure all males of the horde, presenting them a “super-female”, a “Natalie Portman of killer whales” to follow. Just to give a picture about what male killer whales could feel:

Orca DDV mixed up with the horde of killer whales and leaded them at towards the Ung-Do island, where super yacht of Kim Jong-Un was moored while he swam in sea, inferred from intelligence data collected by Dennis Rodman. The plan involved the aroused animals to entangle anti-submarine nets and confuse North Korean divers guarding the anchorage, clearing the way for Orca DDV amidst confusion.

After parking the DDV beneath the super yacht, four Seals were appointed to grab and pull Kim Jong-Un underwater and load him in the DDV. After 6-7 seconds of time window, two Seals were tasked to push US Genetics Class IV Replicant of Kim Jong-Un to the water surface. The $35 million artificial organism was cloned from DNA of Kim Jong-Un, collected from a toothbrush in a luxury hotel at Moscow by western intelligence community. USG Class IV Replicant’s brain was Deep Dream-Trained (DDT) to the correct dialect of Korean language, general surroundings of Korean culture, and personal knowledge of Kim Jong-Un by the best available intelligence sources.

First mission of the Replicant was to hold for 24 hours, faking shock and partial amnesia resulting from the “killer whale attack”, allowing Navy Seals to retreat with Orca DDV. It was unrealistic to expect that immediate relatives, sub-ordinates and personal servants would not discover the plot within 48-72 hours. But preliminary psychological analysis showed that they had no real interest for making it public immediately: sudden changes of the current status quo can have harsh consequences for all ranks in an aggressive totalitarian dictatorship, which is fully based on single person’s power. Had the Replicant survived for 3-6 months, its long term mission was to gradually relieve nuclear pressure on US, and make preparations to lapse and gradually normalize the aggressive totalitarian system.

However, things in the reality did not went quite that way as psycho-engineers at US Genetics planned, because

Quoting Tom's MOCs Ingenious! I admit I was drawn to this model by its primary model image (and am still not quite sure how it got into your group for "helicopter armament"). I much admire how you present your models here. I am thinking I should set aside time to just play around in LDD etc. just to expand my know-how and not just to create something to model.
Thanks. I highly recommend to try LDD. It takes around 1 week to get accustomed to it, but then you can (re)build 10 times more fast than in reality, allowing much more iterations. Unlimited part inventory at first decreases building challenge, but later allows developing more advanced building styles. E.g. in technic TLG sets, technic levers and long axles are relatively scarce compared to technic beams. Using large amount of technic levers as frames and technic axles as longerons allows to build more realistic airframes.

Quoting Nick Barrett Great way to use these awkward pieces, very creative model! Good luck.
Thanks. Comparing large TLG aircraft parts e.g. with Megablocks parts, one can see that TLG parts are designed by the "Barbiemobil-department". But their "Barbieness" now helped to build an almost closed large streamlined hull from very few pieces. For normal building purposes, they are really awkward.

Quoting Angelo Filipelli Very cool craft! I can't believe you actually know about the rare underwater motors. I also didn't know that they are in LDD. Not to advertise, but my entire MOCpages account is dedicated to nothing but boats powered by the rare motors. If you can, check it out!
Thanks. I will check it out.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary
Moreover, I think that neutral buoyancy and longitudial stability is very hard to reach from TLG bricks (every tenth of grams of water displaced counts then). I would rather try positive buoyancy, with 4 large bionicle wings set in negative angle to create an underwater plane. There would be more chance for achieving dynamic stability. One more critical point is the large internal volume of the cockpit filled with water. If the craft has to accelerate that mass, it would eat batteries in a short way. I have no experience with TLG underwater thrusters, but considering efficiency of other TLG batteries, they cannot be very good.

Quoting Jeremy McCreary I'm beginning to fear for your safety, my friend. Some day, pretty foreign agents will sneak into your house and whisk you away, lest that brilliant and devious tactical engineering mind of yours stay or fall into the wrong hands. And believe me, many countries might be tempted. As for the DDV, I see more than a beautiful form. (Talking about the mini-sub here, not Natalie Portman.) I see a working LEGO bathtub submarine, and if I had 2 of those underwater motors, I'd be working on it right now! Likely needed mods: (I) Carefully positioned internal floatation -- e.g., soccer balls, Zamor spheres -- leading to neutral buoyancy and favorable attitudes at rest and at speed. (ii) A rudder and some forward and aft horizontal trim tabs, all adjustable, to maintain course and attitude.
Thanks. Female North Korean agents sneaking into the house will be handled by my wife. You do not know her, but I am telling you... Of course if I can use more than 8 bricks, I put there som trimming device. In the current status, it just goes downward to the bottom...

Quoting BATOH rossi I think it is a good idea, especially in the evaluation system, more "democratic" and transparent. maybe my point is distorted by a disappointing and unexpected score in round 2. your "Orca" continues to be brilliant.
It seems that the last jury decision distorted too many guys viewpoint...

Quoting BATOH rossi Excuse me, Gabor, why is not your Orca in TEPBC?
I noticed lack of interest, on all sides, in the third round, compared to previous years and rounds. I am thinking about to launch a 9-brick building contest series, where 1.All participants can evaluate all other participants 2.There is a predefined score card downloadable for judging, evaluating MOCs by 8-10 variables at 1..6 scale 3. Scorecards and their aggregation is made public immediately after the end of the rounds 4. Winners are strictly ranked by scores achieved

Thanks. There was no any preconcept, I noticed that aircraft hull parts do match in flipped position. All others are result of watching History Channel too much...
