Quite curious. Those would provide tactical advantages. I wonder what Clan Sea Fox (formerly Clan Diamond Shark) would think of such tactics.
When do I “retreat” ? Only when I want to re+treat myself to eating cookies here in VT of USA. Here in VT, outside temperatures can get very cold; I suppose my miniatures won’t get overheated, ha ha.

a metal submarine shaped like a super shark?

maybe as a tourist oddity, but for combat? doubtful. without the organic skin and muscles, a metal hull in that shape could not stay streamlined.

Fear of being eaten would prevent Submersibe Infantry and Battle Armor Infantry from getting close to said meglathons shaped submarines; that could allow the submarines to get some LRTs to attack those Infantries. The fins could provide a disguises to make periscopes unrecognizable.

nah. even NOW, military uses a Magnetic Mass scanner to find subs.
and such tech HAS been mentioned in canon.

you might be able to startle a basic scuba diver, but a military unit wouldn't be bothered.
