The U-227 is an undersea device that was previously used for underwater construction. What it lacks in design, it makes up with its technological breakthroughs. It's comprised of nano-technology and can be suited for a number of functions.
The military found use of this device as a powerful tool for espionage and battle tactics for underwater combat. The initial design was established under the Underwater Research Laboratory (URL), and work hand in hand with the military to perfect it for future missions.
Unfortunately, no pilot was able to operate of the U-227. It's advance functions and precise controls were too complicated for all but one to control. It was intended for use only for the intelligent minds of the URL, and tryin' to recalibrate the schematics of the machine would take tremendous time and effort (Not to mention that it would cost the military financially). So, the project was scrapped.
However, there is one mind that decided to continue the project in secret. Her name was Kathryn, and she altered the calibrations of the U-227 to suit her needs.
With the nanomachines, the forearms of the weapon can have three modes of combat. The standard mode consists of arms, which is suited for close-range combat. They're super powerful, able to smash through titanuim alloy. The second mode transform the forearms into two highly concentrated gatling gun, which fires energy beams with incredible velocity. Of course for long range combat. The third mode is two probes that can emit forcefields, which is great for defense.
The altered version Kat uses is more like an interstellar backpack. The U-227 works in conjunction with a special suit which she created. With the suit, she can give voice commands to the U-227, which the nanomachines will fufill those commands. It has three O2 tanks that will last for several hours and is fed through tubes that connect to the helmet bubble. The turbines on it's back is used for moving the operater around underwater via the controls on each side of the individual. Only Kat has full knowledge of the controls, which is good since the enemy will have no way to control it if it were stolen.
Through Kat wishes, the URL decided to let her operate the machine under the military. In return, the government will fund the URL fully for compensation. Kat loved the URL, but she was infatuated more with the military. She said her goodbyes and shipped out to her new life.
Just a lil' story I cooked up. It doesn't play canon to any story with Kat in it.
I'm not good with drawin' machines. I know there may be some tweaks here and there, so you don't have to make any comments about how crappy the tech is.

's OC Kat for bein' so cool for gettin' me a sub. Thanks buddy.
Kat also counts for this weeks OC.
