THE 26 METER “SPECIAL OPERATION CRAFT”
Designed to be the ultimate special operation / seal craft, the advanced composite ONUK MRTP24 SOC built on the KO- 04b hull tank tested to 72 knots, is the fourth generation of the ONUK MRTP series. Targeting to exceed the increasingly tough requirements of the Special Forces and seal teams operating in hostile environments, the ONUK MRTP24 SOC carries a substantial firepower and combines speed, sea keeping, and load carrying capability with a well proven robust structure designed for an extreme professional use.
With its high speed, superior sea keeping, extended range, sophisticated and extensive weapon/systems, the ONUK MRTP24 SOC is an operationally proven, state-of-the-art Special Operation Craft.
With the standard engines driving through MJP Waterjets, the ONUK MRTP24 SOC can have a top speed above 50 knots at sea state 3, all in perfect stability with very strong emphasis on crew comfort. The vessels are built as per the Det Norske Veritas (DNV) High Speed Light Craft and Naval Surface Craft Rules for Classification.
As all ONUK MRTP platforms, the advanced machinery systems and arrangement result in a vessel with greatly enhanced operability, maintainability and accommodation standards.
• Special Operation / Seal craft
• Anti-terrorist protection of the coastal and Offshore installations
• Patrol / Escort craft
• Search and Rescue
• Seal insertion / extraction
• Lift support (Hardware/Swimmers)
• Support ordnance – Disposal –Diver assets
It is known that the ONUK KO-03 deep “V” hull has been the basis of the exceptional strength and sea-keeping of the “Kaan 20” Class ONUK MRTP20 Fast Intervention Craft of the Turkish Coast Guard .Tank tested to 72 knots the ONUK KO-04b hull and structure are very substantial improvements over the well proven ONUK KO-03.
Speed and sea keeping:
ONUK MRTP24 SOC is able to perform rapid reaction comparable to a helicopter and can be used in confined spots or heavy weathers not suitable for helicopter operations.
The foreseen developments for the next five years concerning the engine and drive system technologies have been taken into consideration in the design of ONUK MRTP24/U.
In order to enhance the Multi Mission Capabilities, increased mission payload and accommodation space/facilities have been provided.
CONSTRUCTION AND COMPONENTS:
The vessel is designed and built to Det Norske Veritas (DNV) HSLC Classification Rules. All the boats of the series are delivered with the relevant DNV Class Certificates. The ONUK MRTP24/U 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 and outfitted inaccordance with the Det Norske Veritas Germanischer Lloyd (DNVgl) High Speed Light Craft and Naval surface craft rules.
A large shock resistant fender system will enable the ONUK MRTP24 SOC to board safely larger vessels in rough waters.
Machinery and propulsion:
The mechanical components are selected with the intensive professional use in mind. They offer a high level of reliability, despite the extreme performance requirements.
In the standard configuration the ONUK MRTP24 SOC is equipped with the all stainless steel state-of-the-art MJP Waterjet system similar to the ONUK MRTP24/U Special Operation Craft of the Turkish Navy. The MJP waterjet system, with unmatched efficiency, is accepted to be the key of the superior performance of the ONUK MRTP24 SOC and is offering an outstanding manoeuvrability. The system proved to be extremely robust in very tough conditions typical of an intense professional use. The hydraulic steering system controls the vectored thrust to provide fast, precise and very efficient manoeuvring.
Commercial and Turkish / NATO naval standards have been applied to the ONUK MRTP24/U for the intact and damaged stability. ONUK MRTP24/U meets the Turkish Navy and NATO criteria for damaged stability and will remain afloat and upright with flooding in any single main compartment.
ONUK MRTP24 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 re-configurability objectives in mind. Thus, the platform can be reconfigured with different mission modules, increasing dramatically the operational flexibility and reducing the costs.
The following weapon and surveillance systems could be installed on ONUK MRTP24 SOC
• ASELSAN STOP 25/30mm or STAMP 12.7mm stabilized turret behind the superstructure,
• 40mm grenade launcher
• Short range missiles (SSM): Roketsan UMTAS or Thales LMM
• Surface to Air Missiles: Stinger or Igla.
• Night vision FLIR system
