Swiftships’ 11 Meter Riverine Assault Craft (RAC) is a diesel powered, hard chine, and modified V hull form, all-aluminum craft with twin water jet propulsions. It is designed to operate in both salt and fresh water, and to operate in Sea State 2 and survive in Sea State 4. The craft is capable of operating in tropical regions with assured top performance in air temperatures up to 100° Fahrenheit. It has a low profile suitable for ready concealment along riverbanks. This craft has an optional trailer, optional truck, and may be transported through military aircraft.
