Combat Boat 90H – Fast patrol Boat
The Swedish shipbuilder DOCKSTAVARVET has developed the CB90H Combat Boat to answer Norwegian and Swedish Navy requirements. Over 225 boats have already been supplied. The CB90H is constructed of aluminum and designed to operate as a fast attack boat, patrol boat and special operations support vessel. Heavy machine guns are mounted in fixed installations, or stabilized and remotely controlled from a monitor in the wheelhouse. The boat can also carry mines or Hellfire missiles, and a gyro-stabilized twin-barrel 12-cm mortar. The boats have a loading capacity of 21 armed soldiers or up to 4.5 tons of cargo. The boat uses two waterjet propulsion units, each powered by a 460 kW diesel engine, developing continuous speeds exceeding 40 knots and high maneuverability.
A non-military Patrol Crafts version of the CB-90 can be equipped with twin 550 kW diesels, to cruise at up to 45 knots. Such a high speed interceptor was recently supplied to the Malaysian Customs service. Equipped with two MAN D2842 LE410 main engines, each with a medium duty rating of 810 kW and two Rolls-Royce Kamewa FF-410 with waterjets, the 16 meter boat has a sprint speed of 50 knots and a cruise at 42 kt. The Malaysian Navy is also operating 17 CB-90H boats.
