Gungan Bongo Submarine (3)
Basic info
First appearance: The Phantom Menace
Summary
A tribubble bongo, also called a Gungan bongo submarine, was a bio-engineered submersible transport used by the Gungans of Naboo. Bongos were handcrafted Gungan vessels, built around a coral-like skeleton underwater. Each one was unique, due to being made individually. The bongo's hull was strong, though could be damaged by some of the creatures in Naboo's oceans. Bongos were in fact based on the creatures found underwater, and thus many of them resembled squids or other such animals. Bongos were equipped with an electrical power plant and a guidance system. Their capacities ranged from one to many occupants. Those capable of holding many passengers were known as heyblibbers. The bongo's propulsion system was based on long tentacles at the aft of the vehicle. These tentacles pushed the bongo forward. The vessel was also equipped with repulsorlifts to push it through specially designed bays in Gungan cities. The bongo had a unique buoyancy system - when the vessel went underwater, special chambers release oil, which increased the vehicle's density. To surface, the oil was absorbed. Bongos were very versatile, and fulfilled many functions, from carrying passengers to cargo.
