Boat Combatboat 90 (CB90), Sweden

32



Combat Boat 90 (CB90) is a high-speed military boat developed by Dockstavarvet. Initially, he conceived to replace the outdated Swedish boats fleet class 200. It is an export version of the Strp 90H, the official Swedish designation H means that the boat is able to transport and deploy up to half of the landing platoon fully armed. The boat was adopted in 1991.



The boat can be used as a high-speed means of attack and coastal defense, a patrol boat, or as a special fire support weapon. It can also be used for intelligence, surveillance, and intelligence gathering operations.



The CB90 boats are currently used by naval forces from several countries, including Norway (like S90N), Greece, Mexico (like CB90 HMN), Malaysia and Brazil. (Note by Professors: The American company SAFE Boats from Washington State acquired a license from the Swedish shipyard Dockstavarvet to build these boats and produced them around 10)



Design
The design of the boat provides him with excellent seaworthiness, high speed, efficiency and safety under various operating conditions. The body is made of aluminum, the length of the light CB90 is 14.9 meters, the displacement is 18 tons, the maximum width of the 3.85 meter. It has a typical hull configuration with reverse saddle deck and a narrow ramp in the nose capable of passing one fighter across the width at a time.



The boat accommodates a fully armed 21 soldier and up to 4.5 tons of cargo. Protected from splinters, the wheelhouse has space for two operators and an additional folding seat between them and resembles an aircraft cabin.



The folding seat is swivel. Directly under the cab there is a bulkhead in which a passage is made to the landing nasal ramp. The unique ramp provides fast deployment of forces, as well as quick evacuation of victims to the shore.



The landing compartment housing the soldiers and their equipment is located in the middle of the boat. The 25% of the aft of the hull is an open deck and can serve as a floating command post with additional communications equipment or as an artillery boat with a possible weapon position.



Modifications
Several CB90 options have been built to meet special requirements. The CB90HI boat is an export version of the Strb HS 90, where the letter S means "Skyddad" (Swedish protected). (Note from Professor, In fact, the origin of the letter S is not so unequivocal. However, in addition to additional armor, the HS model has a system of protection against OMP by creating overpressure in the compartment, a conditioner for deployment in tropical conditions, a fuel cooling system, a generator on 220 Volts and more powerful engines. The boat’s level of protection complies with NATO’s STANAG4, which means that it can withstand shots with 7.62x51 armor-piercing bullets. and to 3.8 tons and thus more powerful engines.)



The CB90 HEX model is a hybrid between the CB90 H and CB90N called Stridsbåt 90N (SB90N) in the Norwegian navy. The CB90 HEX has been optimized for the Royal Navy of Malaysia, the Navy of Mexico, the Royal Swedish Landing Corps and the Greek Coast Guard.



The CB90 NL model is equipped with a battalion-level command and control system, computer and communications equipment, and a backup generator to provide power when the engines are not running. The letter L refers to 'Ledning', which means command or leadership in Swedish.



weaponry
The standard armament of the boat consists of three Browning M2HB machine guns, an 12.7-mm machine gun (or an 40-mm grenade launcher) mounted on a turret in the aft part of the wheelhouse. It can be replaced with a remote-controlled, stabilized machine-gun turret. Paired 12.7-mm machine gun mounted in front of the place for the steering. In addition, the boat is equipped with one Mk 19 grenade launcher and a modified Hellfire RBS 17 SSM system. It can also carry 2.8 tons of sea mines or six depth charges. (approx. Professor, Americans as usual on their boats stuffed so many barrels that it is hardly possible to trace their number and nomenclature.)



Power point
The CB90 boat is driven by two diesel engines rated at 600 kW, which allows it to reach speeds of 45 nodes while maintaining high maneuverability in shallow water in coastal waters. The civilian version of the patrol boat can be equipped with two diesel engines rated at 550 kW, providing maximum speed up to 45 units.



The boat is equipped with two water jet propellers Kamewa FF, which are partially located in the guide nozzle. This feature of a water jet, along with underwater control surfaces, allows the boat to perform extremely sharp maneuvers even at high speed. The maximum power reserve is about 440 km at a speed of 20 knots (37 km / h). The boat is equipped for landing operations, even on an unprepared shore.



(Approx. Professors, more than 220 boats have been produced today. The price of the boat is $ 2-3 million. Recently, some boats have been re-equipped for biofuel to test the possibility of reducing the dependence of the army on oil production)

      Great car. true after every "walk

      I just wanted to write and here is a video in the topic.
      Has anyone tried to fire from this one on the move during maneuvers or in a storm? Here the brave soldiers stand and not fasten any. Cinema, what do you want! Advertising is the engine of trade!
      On such ships, automatic machine guns should be used, but rather a river or special option.
      I had to fire from a helicopter, I’ll tell you not everything is as simple as in a movie!

    Good boat!
    We need the same (but made in Russia!):
    1) 3pcs - to Vladivostok.
    2) 4pcs - on Lake Hanku.
    3) 10 pcs. - on Cupid.
    And then I watch almost every day, when on a dry joke there are 4 large speed and seaworthy boats (by sight, a displacement of 200-300 tons). They were ordered to ensure safety (water area) during the SUMMIT ATC, with such pomp on the news showed.
    So what do you think? SUMMIT passed, they were picked up without a fuss and put ashore.
    That’s almost a year without work !!!

    So they seem to be doing something similar - "Mongoose." But what I liked - the front ladder. good It may not be very beautiful, but quite practical for a small boat for landing.

    Those that stand on the Sands - project 12200 "Sable" Will stand until they rot away - they turned out to be worthless. This is from the words of the coast guard officers.
    "Mongoose" -project 12150, on the contrary, fly every single day, but the color of operational boats is black and white. The commander of one of them lives in the next doorway with me and is very pleased with the apparatus. By the way, I learned from him. that the Mongoose were brought to the An-124 of the Volga-Dnepr company. Live and learn.

    Fu-nya, not a boat. Any country can stamp more than one hundred such boats, well, in different variations. Stuffed with machine guns, but "I can't," but where is the armor? And, well, it is clear that you cannot drive with armor like that, the engine will have to be powerful and gluttonous, and then the power reserve will decrease. Such boats are easily "extinguished" from anti-tank systems.

      This fat commando periodically undergoes physical qualifications, including long-distance running, and if he was allowed to serve, then his "excess weight" does not interfere with his duties.

      Maybe, but not stamped. Even the Americans bought the license, but did not invent it themselves.

      Stuffed with machine guns, but "I can't", but where is the armor?

      Have you tried to read the article or limited yourself to pictures?
      The protection level of the boat corresponds to NATO STANAG4, which means that it is able to withstand shots with 7.62x51 armor-piercing bullets. For an increase in the level of protection I had to pay an increase in weight by 3.8 tons and, accordingly, more powerful engines.

    Is this true about Mongoose? If yes, then not ice.

    The power plant consists of two main engines - four-stroke ten-cylinder 10V2000 M93 diesels from MTU, operating on Arneson ASD-14 drives with partially-immersed fixed-pitch propellers, or KaMeWa A-45 jet propulsors (Rolls-Royce). Diesels are equipped with: common rail fuel supply system; turbocharger register system; water-cooled exhaust manifold. There is the possibility of automatically decommissioning part of the cylinders at low load. The total maximum engine power is 2240 kW (3000 hp) at 2450 rpm. Overall dimensions - 2255х1130х1230 mm. Dry weight - 2900 kg. Auxiliary power plant: 26 kW diesel generator.

    It has "Hellfire" so take a break.

    Incidentally, the method of using this boat is shown in the film "Law of Valor", literally at the beginning of the film.
    There he was used to evacuate the hostage rescue group, and the second boat at that time covered him. Impressions are unforgettable!

    Professor, thanks for the article. Boats bristling with machine gun trunks look like tiny battleships.
    On such it is necessary to chase Somali pirates from the floating base, and not send warships.
    Question - religion doesn’t allow soldiers on boats to put on a life jacket. Is body armor or raking in bulletproof vests a part of combat training?

      Iraclius, if you take a closer look, you will notice saved vests on the Americans. These are inflatable machines. In principle - a cool thing, you fall into the water - he inflates himself, so that even a wounded man can be saved. There used to be problems with them (inflated in a strong storm, etc.) - but now it’s much better.

      In principle, you have already been answered. From myself I’ll add, this vest is inflated from a carbon dioxide cylinder in manual or automatic mode. When it is inflated, its upper part of bright red color covers the neck on the left and on the right so that you can’t tear it off your head just like that. We made fun of the frame for a long time which tried to do this, only when it let the air down took off over our heads.
      There are also such vests

    Another question arose when I was considering photographs of boats. Why such a primitive design of machine gun installations. A variant of the machine and the symbolic protection of the shooter in the form of a tiny armor shield. Decided to save?
    I had to shoot a lot from our Soviet boats. Not from rifled weapons and not automatic. Nevertheless, I have an idea. That is why even a minigun was installed - pitching and jumping on the waves are fierce and aimed shooting is impossible. Therefore, it is necessary to peel into the white light ...
    In my opinion, it would be more expedient to install one - a maximum of two machine guns in automated and stabilized turret armored installations with remote control and circular firing. It would be more sense ...
