This high-speed craft can be configured to suit almost any requirement or mission. With a top speed of 50 knots, an operational envelope to the maxi mum of Sea State 4 and an 10 tonne disposable load capability, the EPS M10 can be configured to carry combat troops, logistic supply cargo or even light vehicles.
The advanced non-corro sive composite of Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) construction uses glass, Kevlar and carbon fibers to give a strong and robust structure. The results are a lightweight vessel with minimal maintenance and servicing, thus insuring prolonged vessel life.
This is in contrast to the corrosion and fatigue prone con ventional aluminum materials used in the past. In operational scenarios such as over-the-horizon landings in shallow waters, inter-coastal patrol duties, marshland access or compromised marine borders, the EPS MIO Hovercraft provides mobility and rescue opportunities to military and peacekeeping forces globally. With its blue-water design and fully amphibious abilities, the EPS MIO Hovercraft's potential theater of operations is limitless.
