This is a MOC in the 'Defensive Sea Power' category for Michael Rutherford's wargame-cum-MOC contest, Decisive Action!
About this creation
Hundreds of these one-man Remora submarines patrol SEAL's coastlines. Like the fish of the same name, they sidle up to and (using a magnetic clamp) attach to the sides of larger sea-going vessels - such as enemy transports and battleships.
Unlike the fish of the same name, the submarine then extends its diamond-tipped, titanium carbide high power saw to slice through even the most heavily armoured hull in minutes.
That saw mechanism in full - water is evacuated through the rectangular forward port, after which the upper of the two double slopes slides forward to advance the blade.
An explosive harpoon launcher mounted on the left upper hull provides a swifter way to dispose of less well armoured interlopers.

What a fascinating build. There's the asymmetry and the Studs On the Side (SOS?) building technique, plus the strange and unusual weapon. Good use of colours, plus a working, pop-out feature for playability: great work.
