Euronaval 2016: CNIM crafts new amphibious landing concept (video)

24th October 2016 - 15:00 GMT | by Grant Turnbull in Paris


French industrial group CNIM used this year's Euronaval in Paris, France, to unveil a 'shore-to-shore' variant of its L-Cat amphibious landing craft.

The variant, based on the successful catamaran hull L-Cat used by the French Navy, does not require a 'host' ship and so can be used independently for a variety of missions. 

Gregory Pelard, a naval architect and technical manager of R&D at CNIM, spoke to Shephard about the design of the new craft and what it could bring to modern navies.
