Mystery FMS customer to receive Shallow Water Combat Submersibles
Teledyne Brown Engineering has received a $39.21 million contract modification from US Naval Sea Systems Command, to produce Mk11 Shallow Water Combat Submersibles for an unnamed FMS customer.
This marks the first export sale of the Mk11.
Work will be performed in Huntsville, Alabama, and is expected to be completed by September 2024.
The USN contracted Teledyne Brown in 2019 to develop the SWCS as part of a wider effort to develop new underwater transport platforms for elite commandos.
Shephard Defence Insight notes that the SWCS comprises a next-generation free-flooding combat submersible that transports SEAL teams and other SOF personnel, as well as their combat equipment in hostile waters for a variety of missions.
