Riverine Command Boats are a lesser known component of the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, which operates in the Persian Gulf region. They mostly sail in the shadows of the larger deck Navy warships that frequent the area and gobble up most of the attention. These extremely fast, armed crafts crewed by approximately eight sailors can perform a wide range of missions and have the capacity to carry special forces or small U.S. Marine units into coastal waters where larger warships simply cannot - making them a highly versatile asset. Safety and ergonomic features including SHOXS Shock Mitigation seating maximizes efficiency, safety and performance.
