A special version of the SR. N6 hovercraft has been ordered for operation by the Royal Brunei Malay Defence Forces. It will be based at Berakas, Brunei, and will be delivered this year.
The hovercraft has been designed specially for river and coastal patrols, as well as search and rescue operations. Sophisticated communications, long-range fuel tanks and remote controlled searchlights are included in the advanced specifications.
The design of the craft was developed from experience gained from anti-smuggling exercises off the coast of Bombay over the last two years.
