First ‘Narco Submarine’ Incident of 2021
The Mexican Navy has made the first reported Narco submarine interdiction of the year.
On January 7, 2021 they stopped a low profile vessel (LPV) off the coast of Santa Cruz, Oaxaca in the Pacific Ocean.
4 crew members were arrested and a large quantity of narcotics was seized.
In 2020, over 25 of the so-called “narco submarines” were intercepted.
The narcosub is a variant of the LPV-OM-2 family, provisionally designated sub-family A (e.g. LPV-OM-2-A). The variation has a longer hull with an insert in the original 13m powerboat hull.
It had 4 outboard motors which are appear to Yamaha Enduro 75hp 2-strokes.
These are the most common type of outboard used on narco subs.
Surprisingly, this sub had a 4 person crew. Narco-submarines with outboard motors tend to only have 3.
