Multi Role Boats (and other small boats thread).
« on: June 07, 2016, 14:35:02 »
Article here on a new multi role boat.  I originally thought the MRB was going to be deployed on the AOPS consistently as well but it seems that is a different contract.  Also interestingly the way the MRB is going to be an extra sensor for the ship with a fairly good range.

With a weapons station I'm also wondering if those would be avail for PRes in their Port Security Small Boat Ops.  Or perhaps its a bit overkill since the shore based ops centres won't necessarily be able to handle the information they could be provided with.

Hmm I started on a ship with a Avon Searider, then we moved up to the Zodiac Mk 5 and now the Coast Guard uses 733’s or similar. Do they want more of a cabin? I don’t understand why they needed to get so close to launch the boat, unless they wanted to provide covering fire if needed?

I think that any form of launch and recovery that does not use a stern ramp is going to suffer limitations

Except, Colin: That's a SB90E, not a CB 90E.

5 meters shorter in length, much slower, not armoured, and older in design than the CB 90 you love.

Sorry  :-[
