The L-CAT® Shore-to-shore is now the only vessel with the ability to transport 80 tonnes at 25 knots in conditions up to sea state 5, land in shallow water (~1m) and accommodate 42 passengers for long distance trips.

Highly maneuverable, the L-CAT® Shore-to-shore provides exceptional operational flexibility for amphibious assaults and humanitarian operations, without compromising between speed and payload. Its wide loading platform (145 m²), ability to travel up to 800 nautical miles when loaded, self defense and communication capabilities are tactical advantages for the projection of Forces. Its speed of 35 knots unloaded allows for the theatre of operations to be cleared rapidly via fast rotations.

As with all CNIM amphibious crafts, the L-CAT® Shore-to-shore is able to deploy semi-rigid boats and underwater robots for beach reconnaissance.
