Designed for rapid crossing of wide water obstacles by all tracked and wheeled vehicles up to class 80ton. The ferry consists of four main pontoon sections, four bow pontoon sections, four buoyancy sections and four hydraulically-operated ramps. All pontoon sections and ramp sections are made of alluminium alloy.
The four main pontoon sections are in the centre with buoyancy sections on either side and the bow pontoon and ramps at either end. Loads are carried only on the four main pontoon sections.
Built into each bow pontoon section is a Gill hydrojet propulsion unit, powered by a 120hp engine. The powerpack, consisting of the engine, clutch and gearbox, is bolted onto the dec of each bow pontoon section. The Gill propulsion unit is basically an axial-flow pump that takes in and ejects water at the base of the pontoon. For steering the jet can be traversed though a full 360 degrees.
