Red Viper

Red Viper: Special Action Forces Vessel

Red Viper is a 20 metre Australian Commando Unit Special Forces vessel designed for the Australian Department of Defence. The vessel, which is still in operation, has been involved in a number of different roles since it’s launch in 1999. Some of these roles include as an Army patrol boat, a dive support vessel, and for various special forces operations. With ample accommodation for her crew, a full galley, air-conditioning, and 8,000 litres of fuel on board, she is a sturdy and highly capable vessel suited for extended patrol duties. Power is supplied by two marine diesels which drive the fixed pitch propellers, giving Red Viper a top speed of 25 knots and allowing her to efficiently cruise at 18 knots.
