ELECTRIC CLASS | RIVER PATROL BOAT
Length: 16.3 meters
Width: 3.1 meters
Draft: 0.8 meters
Displacement: 14.7 tons
The Electric class is a riverine patrol and littoral interception craft designed for tactical operations. The boat is sea proven and has a hull form optimised for high-speed operations. The boat has a 'deep vee' hull, providing a high level of speed and maneuverability.
The crew is connected to the 9LANDs command and control system, allowing the vessel to interlink with the full power of the NH Military. Intelligence is also gathered by a SAFIRE electro-optical camera mounted atop the vessel's mast, providing a long range 360 degree view around the boat. A fire control radar system allows the vessel to engage targets on or just under the surface, on land, or in the air.
The boat mounts a 30mm gun not unlike that on the Apache attack helicopter, allowing it to face threats of a much larger nature. A Trophy Active Denial System and Boomerang II shot detection system are installed on the vessel, due to it's typical close-to-shore mission profile.
Particular operations of the Electric class are:
Crew facilities include a compact galley, a mission planning/conference table for six people, and forward bunks for five personnel. The endurance of the Electric class vessel is high for it's small size, but generally limited at most to a 72 hour mission period.
