Underwater explorations: path of rats

This drawing is a continuation of my series "Underwater explorations": , , ( lemurs scuba gear) , , ,

which are the fanfiction for "Legacy" comic by Kitfox-Crimson :iconkitfox-crimson: (also in the original comic there no underwater and scuba-diving episodes yet).

The rats faction has their own design of scuba suits/environmental suits in which they used a full-faced masks with hoses, which connected to regulator, which mounted on back of the head, and provides a connection to various breathing apparatus backpacks even designed for humans. Than the front part of the mask is more free to different purposes. Also they use a masks with traditional front connection or half-masks with special mouthpiece.
So you can see a some female rat military/officer in ground uniform at left and some another anthro rat, which doing a some trainings in this environmental suit on ground. Also you you can see a rack with this suits - with masks at top and packed bodysuits in bottom boxes.

Cool! Yeah rats probably don't dive much because they're afraid of dying.... except water rats of course!

So your rats have some psychological problems. Because a rats in ages were a "passengers" of human's ships, also you can find a videos about rats, which comes to human houses through a canalization )) I think, that high-tech civilization must have a some underwater technology for food, energetics and recreation. Also, if they think about security and their lives save, they must have a rescue scuba gear.

}} push-ups geared up 
This is not wery big problem for trained for special operations one, also because this rats technology widely uses a portable antigravity engines and large energy sources. This gear looks like a traditional but really provides a minimum resistance on breathing, also its weight can be neutralized (but if you want trainings you can use up to full weight :) ) Also a rats-divers widely used a special water propulsion trusters, which enhance their fins and can to provide their underwater speed up to 60-70 km/h . I will to redraw this scuba gear later more detailed.
