    DC55 video

    A quite rare video of our last dive (a week ago) in the lake of Geneva.

    1st part: 3 x DC55 together, a French pSCR rebreather used by minesweepers until 90's.



    2nd: 1 x Oxygers 57/97, 100% oxygen mCCR used until '90 by French frogmen.

    Video can not lie

    ...but from my experience, it is not so easy to be 100% balanced at the first dive with the DC55 whose top is light (lung) but bottom heavy (tanks).

    French style!

    The first time the guy was diving with it. Beside that the balance of the DC55 is done to work on vertical position. If you want to use it for normal diving you have to put at least 3 kg on the shoulders, and install a wing instead of the original "bouée Oceane " from the French navy and then you get a perfect trim .

    should we really talk about german or spanish navy way of dive manifest????

    DC 55 was design to work and not to fly!
    And if you want to fly try a oxygers instead of a light bulky Draeger, LAR......

    Not here for a fight, but please try really diving apparatus before giving an opinion.

    best to you
