Skiff Under Water!
This wreckage in the Mediterranean Sea near the coast of Tunis, Tunisia, is, without a doubt, the back end of a Bantha-II cargo skiff! These repulsorlifts manufactured by Ubrikkian Industries were especially unique with the single-operator control station located at the rear of the vehicle. The control station is clearly visibile in the photograph!
The nearby waters of Tunisia are carefully guarded and the diver who snapped this photograph must have done so at extreme risk. Unfortunately, we don't have a zoomed out image to see if the two steering vanes on either side are still intact. We do know, however, that the diver reported a long pointy object sticking out of the sand twenty meters away from the wreckage that he couldn't identify.
It makes sense to find a desert skiff near the desert of Tunisia, but who or what commissioned it to be there is a mystery. If you have experience in shallow-sea diving and wish to investigate, feel free to contact us. We can share with you the little information we have as to the location of the wreck. We're anxious to find out if any of the cargo is still intact!
