Israeli delivery vehicles for combat swimmers

Sea Chariot DPV


A new, interesting vehicle for the transportation of combat swimmers, this time from Israel. The company Technical Equipment International (TEI) Ltd is well known for its military night vision equipment, including for work under water, as well as sniper rifles. Sea Chariot (sea chariot) - is a single unit, in which the swimmer is almost reclining behind a small frontal water deflector shield. Distinctive features are the installation in the apparatus of the on-board air supply system (usually installed on larger vehicles) and three electric propellers, two of which are installed on the front hydrofoils. Such a scheme allowed us to obtain extremely high maneuverability.



Specifications:
Overall Length: 3,8 M
Maximum height: 0,7 m
Maximum width: 1,85 m with extended wings
Maximum width: 1,105 m with folded wings
Weight: 250 kg
Air supply system: 2 tank plus 1 backup
Buoyancy: neutral, with independent inflatable bags for emergency ascent
Materials: fiberglass reinforced and anodized aluminum
Speed: 3 node
Working depth: 30 m
Propulsion system: 3 propellers with electric motors, lead-acid batteries

Sea Chariot Mk3


The larger unit Sea Chariot Mk.3 serves to transport three people. The boat has three energy-suspended outboard for comfortable planning above the water at high speed, which helps one diesel engine with a jet. Larger dimensions of the device allow you to install a folding mast.

Specifications:
Length: 7 m
Height: 1,75 m maximum
Width: 2,85 m with extended wings, 2 m with folded wings
Weight: kg 1750, kg 2500 combat
Air supply system: 42 kiloliter
Working depth: 30 m
Speed: 35 knots on the surface, 25-30 cruise nodes (diesel thrust), 3,5 knots under water (electric thrust)
Cruising range: 150 nautical miles (max)
Diving time: 4 hours (approximately 14 nautical miles)
Mover (on the surface): 260 hp diesel engine (6 cylinders) powering the jet
Fuel: 200 liters
Power supply (underwater): lithium-ion batteries 48 volts, 160 Ah, 3 screws (two in front, one in the stern)



Sea ranger


A much larger device Sea Ranger belongs to the class of submersible rigid-hull inflatable boats. The layout of the boat is similar to the layout of the smaller SubSkimmer (see above). The boat is distinguished by its passenger capacity: the crew is two people and twelve passengers. On the water, the boat is driven by two water cannons, under water with the help of four propellers.


Specifications:
Length: 9,5 m
Width: 2,67 m
Weight: 1800 kg, 3400 kg with full load
Working depth: 50 m
Speed: 50 nodes on the surface, 25 nodes cruise (diesel thrust), 5 nodes under water (electric thrust)
Propulsion (on the surface): 2 diesel engine (6 cylinders) horsepower 150 hp or 250 hp, powered water jets
Fuel: 1700 liters
Power supply (underwater): Lithium-ion batteries, rotating 2 or 4 screw hp power 25

          Dear, if you are so literate that you are confident in owning the great and mighty, then take the trouble to leaf through the files of the foreign military review for 1989.

        Yes, no less engage in ideology, at the same time gradually destroying the state, and more really pressing aspirations and problems of people. At the end of the existence of the USSR, ideology began to sharply not correspond to reality, and this pushed the masses to change and self-deception, they splashed out a child with water.

    The last device is a curious thing! To deflate-inflate onboard cylinders, to take in-pump out water and seal the suspensions ... Interestingly, these operations are carried out manually (then how long does it take ?!), or automatically (then you can turn it on)?
    And then, 5 knots under water - is it up to a fig for an open device? Wets out the crew in a couple of minutes. Although, maybe just for reserve ...

      4 knots limit for open type

    We will not deny that their head also does not work badly in the right direction, there is somehow less greed, otherwise your individual individuals and ours will be corrupted terribly. In general, when you are with us in an ordinary, ordinary environment, you are good guys.

      with your left hand you take the handle behind your head, with your right hand behind the scope (I understand correctly?), a sharp turn to the right and a karachun to a diver laughing, the contraption on the mask should break easily and remove the handles from the back of the head or in general, and let the shekels be sent for advice laughing
