In Britain, developing a boat that can sail under water

In Britain, the development of the latest VICTA speed boat, capable of immersing in water and moving there for some time, has begun. According to "Nplus1", the boat is created for combat swimmers.


In Britain, developing a boat that can sail under water


The British company SubSea Craft presented a draft surface boat designed for quick and covert penetration of enemy territory. The boat is capable of diving and delivering combat swimmers like a submarine. The developers are positioning the development as a replacement for the submarine sabotage using submarines or other methods. It is reported that this method is safer than throwing mini submarines, and, more importantly, cheaper.

According to published information, a boat in the surface position can reach speeds of more than 30 knots and overcome up to 250 nautical miles. It accommodates 8 fighters with full gear. The transition from surface to underwater takes up to 2 minutes. The depth to which the boat is able to descend is not reported, but it is known that in the underwater position it is able to overcome up to 25 nautical miles at a speed of 8 knots. Movement under water is provided by two electric motors with 20 kilowatt each. Management at depth is carried out by four screws.

In the surface position, the boat is powered by a 725 hp diesel engine. The hull of the boat is mainly made of composite materials. The dimensions of the boat are also not given, but it is reported that it can be transported by C-130 Hercules transport aircraft or by CH-47 Chinook heavy transport helicopters.

        The maximum range of 250 miles is if no return is foreseen, which is in doubt. The combat radius will be no more than 100 miles. Those. there back plus stock should remain, this is the sea. I mean, and how will the boat be delivered at such a range. Drop from an airplane / helicopter or drive it on large ships. But the idea is not bad. Diversions in front of the main landing forces

      It is flimsy for such work, but for a breakthrough on a poorly guarded section of the border, where there are many hidden sections on the coast, for landing or receiving DRG, just right.

      Yeah. With a depth of immersion hardly more than 50 meters - that’s it. When there are deep-sea drones that can be launched without a load from an oceanographic ship or any other inconspicuous vessel.

    There is nothing breakthrough in this. I would even say that this can be realized at the garage level. And like any universal project, it carries the main drawback, it will be a shitty submarine and a premature boat, since the seaworthiness of surface ships and the hydrodynamics of submarines come into conflict up to and including mutual exclusion.

    Special communication cables at a depth of 10 meters are not laid. (more precisely, they MAY be on the coast, or at a shallow depth near the shore. This taxi cannot dive to the bottom. Moreover, it’s a light diver.
    So what is the discovery? Minisubmarines for transporting divers underwater were still in the 2nd World War. Italians were specialists in this area.
    So, to use this thing, surfaced to the surface who prevented yesterday? Sizes, it seems, are larger than then. But what is the fundamental novelty?

    Small-haired people have stolen North Korean technology. "Type B (Racoon) became the first semi-submersible boat of the DPRK, had a surface speed of 30-40 knots and a semi-submersible 12 knots. Its capture in 1983 by South Korea made a great impression on Western naval thought and led to the development of similar ships in the United States and South Korea. "

      the implementation of this project is under a very big question ...
      Now the Naglosaksa have much more urgent problems than the delivery of reconnaissance groups on a submarine. for example, England risks being left completely without MBT. the existing tanks are outdated, there is no replacement for them and the production of tanks is curtailed. also problems with the fleet. even sending two destroyers to the shores of Iran is already a problem. Brexit is still approaching, as a result of the Irish branch where the only base of British nuclear submarines is located.
      but so the British love all sorts of shows like submarines and air defense flamethrowers wassat

    And what, this skull can independently approach the shore, or from the ship-womb, which they will see for 200 miles? Why, one wonders, is the North being heavily covered? This is the first.
    Second, and in the North, how many industrial and military facilities that the enemy has a goal to hit? To such objects hundreds of kilometers from the coast. And those small ones, I cover. With the advent of new features, they will cover harder.
