Manually Assisted Sea Cyborg by Keithwormwood Manually Assisted Sea Cyborg by Keithwormwood
Cetaceans have long been used by military outfits, trained for marine mine clearance, reconnaissance, and even attack roles. However their willful, individualistic personalities caused severe problems. Escapees were common, which represented an extremely expensive loss in both resources and time, for their trainers. The J8 program solved this issue with heavily genetically modified Belugas featuring post-growth expansive mechanical grafting which fitted them to be overseen by a human pilot.

Key Features:

Opened canopy exposes cockpit.

Legs mounted on underbelly allow cyborg to crawl along the seabottom and minimize water disruption for the sake of covert movement.

Manipulator arms can be controlled by pilot for precise tasks (repairs, sabotage, etc).

Feed tubes supply a space efficient, dehydrated cocktail to nourish the remaining biological elements of the cyborg.

Synthetic fin extensions can unfurl or contract depending on the need for speed or maneuverability.

poor thing, still grosses me out. It's enough for a person to ride on your back, but having your body cut open so a person can climb inside of you. I will harpoon the thing in the face and sell the meat.

Awesome sauce all over it.
you thought it out so well too...
Only... how does the "driver" get oxigen?
Does he just bring a tank with him, or does the baluga have some sort of filtering device to take it from
the surrounding waters?
I'd think the beast is better off like this, since it's improved.
If it's brains have been replaced as well, then you can even sustain a cyborg like that forever.
In the end you'd get a super intelligent cyborg too. Maybe it could even learn a way of clear
communication with the driver...
Cool stuff!
