Swiftships’ Landing Craft is a twin screw diesel powered vessel. The hull and superstructure are constructed of all-welded steel in accordance with approved codes. Seagoing vessels used to convey a landing force of infantry and vehicles from the sea to the shore during an amphibious
assault. These specifications can be modified in accordance to the operator’s preference and needs.
The LCU 1700 class is a replacement for the USN LCU 1650 with upgraded/modernized systems and capabilities. The craft has a Roll On/Roll Off configuration with hydraulically controlled bow and stern ramps that allow multiple vessels to mate up to establish a causeway/bridge to access extremely shallow unimproved landing areas.
The craft will enter, exit and be transported in well decks of current and programmed U.S. Navy amphibious warfare ships, for design purposes defined by the dimensions of LHD, LPD, LSD and LHA classes without ship alterations, while transporting loads up to 11 feet high above the craft’s vehicle deck.
