CB 90 H design project
The project was initiated in 1988 by BUSHIPS of the (FMV). It was based on a Coast Artillery requirement to be able to transport 20 soldiers (half a platoon incl. equipment = 2.8 tons or the corresponding weight in mines) at 30 knots in reasonable comfort and safety even in adverse weather conditions and to be able to make forceful landings on enemy held beaches. In addition, there were stringent limitations on procurement and total life cycle costs.
The weapon fit comprises a 12.7 mm machine gun (or a 40 mm grenade launcher) carried on a ring mount aft of the wheelhouse and a double 12.7 mm mounted in front of the helmsman's position. The twin mount is fixed in traverse and aimed by pointing the craft - hence the elevation and fire controls are incorporated in the maneuvering levers at the helmsman's position. Additionally, the CB 90 H can also carry 2.8 ton of mines or the modified Hellfire-type RBS 17 SSM system.
