About the NSW RHIB:
The first commercial Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat was introduced at the 1969 London boat show. Development began in 1964 by the Royal National Life Boat Institution and then patented by Admiral Desmond Hoare. By the mid to late 1970’s, the Canadian Coast Guard were using them and today are used throughout the world. RHIB’s are used by civilians, Law Enforcement, Coast Guards and military rescue operations. Anyone enlisted in the US navy may sign up to be part of a Special Boat Team and participate in VBSS (Visit Board Search Seizure).
The NSW (Naval Special Warfare) RHIB in particular is used by the US NAVY SEALS mainly as a quick means of insertion and extraction. It’s twin diesel engines can reach speeds exceeding 45 knots, has radar, GPS, IFF transponder (identifies friend or foe), secure communication and is 11 meters long.

UTVs are utilized by the military in many different forms, from extended cabs that can seat 4 and carry additional supplies to ultra light models, which our kit is based on. This tactical vehicle can seat two and carry additional supplies or troops in the compact bed. The UTV is ideal for small strike team transport as it is an agile and low profile off road vehicle. Currently used UTVs are also extremely versatile, often featuring modular seating and storage options as well as tow-behind trailers and other add ons. These vehicles are frequently used by SOCOM and other Special Operations Forces.
