A Submarine is a watercraft capable of independent operation underwater in Grand Theft Auto V.


GTA V features the only functioning and usable submarine in the series so far, the Submersible, taking the form of a small submarine craft, with a bubble cockpit surrounded by a metal tube frame. The release of the enhanced version includes another submarine, the Kraken.

There is also the wreck of a Submersible off of the western coast of Pacific Bluffs and an older submarine from the Cold War era, which resembles either a Soviet Alfa-class submarine or a Charlie-class submarine, off the northeastern coast of Mount Gordo.

In the Los Santos Naval Port, there is a partially deconstructed Soviet Alfa-class submarine owned by Merryweather Security.

GTA: Online adds various other submersible type vehicles, taking the forms of the "Kosatka", a full sized Russian submarine purchasable by the protagonist online, the "Avisa", effectively a civilian version of previous submarines, and the "Stromberg" and "Toreador", cars that gain the ability to turn into submersibles with their own missiles and torpedoes.

In GTA: Online, a setup for "The Bogdan Problem" includes sinking a Russian submarine. This might tie into debate over "spy submarines" in the game.

In December 2020, the Cayo Perico Heist update released, which involves buying a Russian submarine (a "Kosatka", similar to the one seen in "The Bogdan Problem") to infiltrate the island of Cayo Perico. It is manned by "Pavel", a character similar to "Bogdan" from the previous mission, who, in the opening cutscene after buying the "Kosatka", comments about getting involved with 3 IAA agents and an angry blogger undersea, and later about various jobs, including faking a sailing accident for the governor of Liberty City, again backing up the aforementioned "spy submarines".
