"Originally designed for oil exploration, the six bathyspheres are to arrive by 2022.

The next time Vladimir Putin decides to put "little green men" in a country illegally, Spetsnaz troops might arrive in a futuristic deep-diving submarine, according to Russian media outlet Tass.

Originally commissioned by Gazprom for inspecting and working on underwater pipelines, the spherical submersibles — more properly called bathyscaphes — feature super-strong acrylic windows in a titanium frame. They can be transported to their missions aboard civilian or military ships, carry three troops to a depth of 2.5 kilometers, and run for a whole day on a single charge, Tass said…."

stupidly expensive method to insert personnel

Typical Russian misinformation, I suspect.

No need to be able to go deep for amphibious insertions.

Could be useful for cutting cables in the Baltic Sea and other areas though, as many fear the Russians may do at some point, to cripple/hamper communications and commerce.
