VICTA Will Start Sea Trials in August 2021!

Issue 105

Deploying Special Forces (SF) operators into their field of operations always has its challenges, but when it comes to covert operations in the open sea, safe insertion into and extraction out of the field takes on an even greater level of complexity and importance. Currently, SF use Long-Range Insertion Craft (LRIC) for surface-based fast transit and insertion operations at distance. Swimmer Delivery Vehicles (SDVs), often submarine-based, are used for sub-surface insertion. For subsea, VICTA brings a new concept, providing the combined capability to conduct long-range surface transit at speed before transitioning to Diver Delivery Unit (DDU) mode for sub-surface insertion.
