U.A.E.-based Armacraft has signed contract for its new Trident high-speed diver delivery craft with an undisclosed Foreign Navy.
Sea trials with the new generation Trident units will commence later this year with delivery to end customer planned for early 2022.
Armacraft submersible program involves primarily two different type of submersible high-speed diver delivery crafts, MK I; 6 crew recognizance and diver delivery craft and MK II; a larger 12 squad, transportation and diver delivery craft. Both models are optimized for transportation in 40ft containers to ensure responsive and prompt deployment.
Armacraft technical director Tommy Eriksson said, “The final design phase (of the Trident project) has been completed with rigorous underwater-computerized flow dynamics, with hull optimization for performance while surfaced and in submerged mode.”
