SWCC, or Special Warfare Combat Craft, operators conduct high priority missions in support of U.S. national objectives. Small-unit tactics, give them the ability to conduct military actions that are beyond the capability of conventional military forces. They are masters of maritime special operations. Two primary boats are used in executing SWCC missions -the Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB), is a high speed, high buoyancy, extreme weather craft used primarily in beach landings, and the Special Operations Craft-Riverine (SOC-R), a high speed boat with ample weapons and equipment capacity, operating primarily in waterways located well inland. Navy SWCC Special Boat Operator Chief Chris Favata describes what it means to operate these unique weapons of war.
