    Way cool, the thing transforms from a monohull to a catamaran, its either a fast cat or a shallow draft landing craft to even a small vessel floating dry dock.

    You just got to love the French. :)

    By using a unique patented lifting platform, the MPC2 combines shallow water landing and shore-connecting operations with the deployment of high-speed interceptors, helicopters, UAVs or observation ROVs.

    The movable platform can be lowered into the water, thereby reducing the vessels draft, allowing it to navigate in shallow waters and approach the shore and beach.

    RHIB launching and recovering operations are performed by lowering and inclining the ships platform to create a sheltered sea area in between two hulls, as well as a protected artificial landing area onto the inclined platform. Doing so, the operators can work under safe conditions, while the RHIBs and interceptors can navigate away from the vessels stern wake turmoil.
