Onuk MRTP 29 Fast Patrol Craft
Mastery of the littoral can not be presumed. It does not derive directly from command of the high seas. It is an objective which requires our focused skills and resources. ONUK MRTP29 "Fast Patrol Craft" has been designed for this purpose, capable of carrying out a wide range of littoral and coastal water law enforcement-naval duties and open sea rescue, including:
Patrol / Escort / Fast attack
Search and rescue
Anti terrorist protection of the coastal and offshore installations
Surveillance / Covert surveillance
The 90 tonne ONUK MRTP29 (“KAAN 29″ Class) Fast Patrol Craft of the Turkish Coast Guard. is the new member of the MRTP (Multi Role Tactical Platform) family of boats, a concept created and developed by Kaan N.Z. Onuk. It targets to reinforce the very successful image of the MRTP boats generated by the �KAAN15� class ONUK MRTP15 series in service besides the Turkish Coast Guard since 1997. A series of nine ONUK MRTP29 are delivered as of April 2004.
Speed and seakeeping:
The ONUK MRTP29 has been developed for a tough professional use with excellent performance qualities at both low and high speeds and strong emphasis on seakeeping. The ONUK OE-01 deep V hull, depending on engine selection and boat configuration, will enable the boat to reach speeds up to 60 knots in calm waters and above 35 knots in Sea State 4. ONUK MRTP29 has a soft and dry ride in adverse conditions, offering, thus, an outstanding platform for the various tasks in the brown waters and the open sea.
The MJP water jet drive system provides extreme maneuverability with high precision control and a very shallow draught, enhancing the operation in confined waters or intercepting/boarding larger ships in rough seas.
Commercial and Turkish / NATO naval standards have been applied to the ONUK MRTP29 for the intact and damaged stability. ONUK MRTP29 meets the DNV standards as well as Turkish Navy and NATO criteria for damaged stability and will remain afloat and upright with flooding in any single main compartment.
CONSTRUCTION AND COMPONENTS
ONUK MRTP29 is built in advanced composites to satisfy the very tough requirements of an intensive professional use together with a long service life. The benefits of the advanced composite structure are:
- Improved Performance
- Increased Payload
- Fuel Savings
- Longer service life
- Maintenance savings
- Threat avoidance/detection
- Ballistic protection
- Machinery vibration/acoustic
- Magnetic signature
- Heat signature
The hull and superstructure are constructed to Det Norske Veritas (DNV) HSLC Patrol R2 classification. All boats of the series are delivered with the relevant DNV Certificates.
The helm station and the interiors have been designed in line with the SAE recommendations for ergonomics to provide the crew with maximum comfort and minimum fatigue in prolonged use in heavy seas.
Machinery and propulsion
The high speed propulsion system is by twin MTU 16V4000M90 diesels and MJP 753DD water jets. A CODAG system is also available. Depending on the mission and speed requirements, the ONUK MRTP29 can be equipped with different components for optimum operational efficiency/price ratio.
The mechanical components are selected with the intensive professional use in mind. They offer a high level of reliability, despite the extreme performance requirements.
ONUK MRTP29 can be equipped with various mission modules depending on the customer requirements. Despite the size of the platform, these modules have been integrated with the modularity and reconfigurability objectives in mind. Thus, the platform can be reconfigured with different mission modules, increasing dramatically the operational flexibility and reducing the costs. The mission modules would be:
Multi weapon mounts
- Stabilized naval turret with up to 30 mm gun (+short range SSM).
- Medium range SSM (Total weights up to 2.5 tons)
- Short range SAM
- 2×12.7mm heavy MG
Multi sensor surveillance suite (EOD with capability of controlling the main gun)
