CTruk Thor

From the manufacturer

CTruk’s composite 11m Twin Hulled Offshore Raider is based on a proven offshore support vessel design and offers a stable catamaran platform with the company’s (patent-applied) flexible deck formation giving true multi-role capability. The base vessel can be configured as; Force Protection Craft, with a remote weapon system controlled from within the craft; Troop Carrier, with a focus on safe and efficient transport of troops to other vessels or beaches; or Riverine, a patrol vessel configuration providing extra fire power with quick response and high manoeuvrability features. The CTruk THOR Force Protection Craft variant incorporates a range of high-tech equipment provided by the CTruk CAP (Collaborative Amphibious Project) consortium.

As nifty as it looks (although not convinced about the personnel egress facilities and open plan version) it cannot hope to be as cool as CTruk’s other products

“The world loves modules. Well, I do anyway!”

Me too!

On a more serious note – can the Thor be operated from RN standard davits, or does it require specialised cranes/well dock?

Answering my own question:

“Lifting points for Hendriksen hooks built-in to allow lifting with current davit systems”

I love everything they make, I’m sure we can find military applications for all of em!
If we had some money I’d have something from C-Truk on every RN vessel even the subs if I could, even if it was only a coffee mug! Which in truth is about what we can run to…
I’d like Thors on all the Frigates/Destroyers and the Larger ones on anything with a dock, the utility is just fantastic and it’s BRITISH BRITISH BRITISH I tell yea!
Sorry I am very enthusiastic about their products, a very real alternative to the CB90, for the Marines a the very least…

Just imagine the 50t MPC as a replacement for the ‘Archers’. One day a floating classroom, the next a full fat armed patrol vessel.

They are a bit too big to fit on anything that isn’t capable of carrying Landing Craft.
