At the moment of delivery used helicopters and each foray into the watery depths of the fighters run the risk of being discovered and killed. To keep them alive, a British company SubSea Craft developed a speed boat, which makes the delivery of the fighters less dangerous.

The boat was called VICTA and its main feature is that it can swim both over water and under it.

When the boat would dive under the water using four horizontal screws, the action goes to two electric motors with a capacity of 20 kilowatts each.

In the mode of surface swimming to the boat can accelerate to 55.6 kilometers per hour and overcome 463 kilometers. As soon as the unit closer to enemy territory, he can for 2 minutes to get down into the water and quietly swim up to the point of destination at the speed of 14 kilometers per hour.
