Thunderbird 4 submersible from the live-action Thunderbirds movie...

In 2004 director Jonathan Frakes brought Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds to the big screen in a live-action remake and re-imagining of the popular British marionette puppet TV show from the 1960's.

Thunderbird 4 is just one of International Rescue's many vehicles designed for specific rescue conditions and environments. This one is a small underwater utility submersible transported where it is needed by Thunderbird 2 (a supersonic VTOL carrier aircraft).
