Awesome! Will need lots of Live Resin bits to upgrade to a SEAL boat. And hopefully we'll see a SOC-R eventually too

And, with a Norwegian or Swedish crew, some very interesting / challenging splinter camouflage schemes, too.

Will be challenging 45 cm or one and a half foot long. Wonder how high the pricestag is? 120 Euros plus? Think of all the possibilities for AM comapanies. Weapons and crew figures for US, Swedish, Norwegian or Malasian boats? I better start saving.,.

The American version looks like it will be armed to the teeth. More tempting now. Al

If we all buy lots of these and suggest to Tiger Model that a Nasty boat would be really tasty then they might just possibly decide that 1/35th small craft is jolly good business
If we all go and buy lots of Italeris 1/35th MTB's then some other manufacturers might get the notion that this is really good business and we would be flooded with MTB's and other smallish, say shorter than 100 to 120 ft, patrol craft.

Are they the same boats that got lost while operating in the Persian Gulf and then the crews subsequently surrendered to the Iranians?

The initial release seems to be the baseline version - no additional US deck or other weapons - and apparently only comes with Malaysian Navy and Greek Coastguard decals. Presumably other boxings to follow. You need a small arsenal for the US version: 50cal OWS, single 50, twin 50, Minigun and single M240 seem to be fairly normal.

To the list of users can be added the German Navy, who plan to carry CB90 aboard their new fleet replenishment ships.

The Norwegians apparently had at least 1 fitted with a Hellfire launcher adapted from a Protector OWS behind the bridge. But this may just have been a trial. Norwegian grey/grey/brown splinter camo is nice.

There are other interesting small boat options. USN have the Small Unit Riverine Craft (SURC), which is basically an armed RIB and is often seen in company with the RCB. The UK's Offshore Raiding Craft is similar: lots of guns on a RIB. I'm sure there are others.

There is a special USN semi-trailer for the RCB, usually pulled by an MTVR semi-tractor. That would be nice.

Several armed forced including the UK use the Griffon hovercraft.
