A submarine is a watercraft capable of independent operation underwater. It differs from a submersible, which has more limited underwater capability. Submarines have one of the widest ranges of types and capabilities of any vessel. They range from small autonomous examples and one or two-person vessels that operate for a few hours, to vessels that can remain submerged for six months.
