The Tactical Personal Watercraft (TPWC) has been specially developed to meet the tactical requirements of Special Forces Teams and Law Enforcement Agencies, to provide a fast and highly manoeuvrable platform in open water, surf and riverine environments, resulting in a rapidly deployable capability for surveillance, insertion, extraction, interdiction and search & rescue roles.
The craft are designed with reduced signatures for day and night operations and offer a greater payload, improved performance and superior seakeeping than commercially available PWCs. Increased engine power output provides high-speed capability at full payload, with or without towed sled.
The craft are designed to be either helicopter underslung or air delivered and are capable of being stowed on and launched from a wide variety of road, sea and air platforms.
