    called specif. {submergible submarine} when capable of
    operating at various depths and of traveling considerable
    distances under water, and {submersible submarine} when
    capable of being only partly submerged, i.e., so that the
    conning tower, etc., is still above water. The latter type
    and most of the former type are submerged as desired by
    regulating the amount of water admitted to the ballast tanks
    and sink on an even keel; some of the former type effect
    submersion while under way by means of horizontal rudders, in
    some cases also with admission of water to the ballast tanks.

Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Seeing a submarine in your dream indicates that you are cautiously exploring your emotions and examining your unconscious feelings. You still remain guarded about certain emotional issues. Alternatively, the submarine indicates that you need to adapt a different perspective and understanding. You may need to get down to the core of some situation or problem.
