LSSC

 

The LSSC (Light SEAL Support Craft) was designed for squad-sized operations. It was an aluminum twenty-four foot long boat with a low silhouette and a nine-foot beam.  With twin high-performance engines powering jet pumps, this boat really moved.  The boat came with radar and numerous gun positions, including a .50 caliber machine gun on the stern. The cockpit, crew, and engine compartments were protected with ceramic armor plating.  MST-Two Detachment Golf used this boat sparingly with a three-man crew.  Once it returned with a baseball size dent in the hull where a B-40 rocket hit, but did not explode.
