Pagination or Media Count:
In order to perform important aspects of its amphibious mission, the Marine Corps requires a rigid raiding craft RRC with twin outboard motors. The RRC will be employed with Marine amphibious units MAUs that are designated special operations capable SOC. It will provide a high speed, low signature amphibious method to insert and extract small units conducting missions defined in Marine Corps doctrine and Joint Chiefs of Staff Publication 1. The initial operational capability IOC is 1987 and full operational capability FOC is 1988. The RRC, with twin outboard motors, will perform dependably at high speed over long ranges in marginal weather allowing surprise and flexibility in special operations. It will have a low amphibious-lift footprint and will also be air transport able and deliverable.
