Kaan 15 Multi-Role Tactical Platform (MRTP)

The advanced composite "Fast Intervention Craft" ONUK MRTP15 is the first boat of the Multi Role Tactical Platform (MRTP) family developed for the increasingly tough requirements of the law enforcement and naval forces to control the littoral and the coastal waters. Internally, the advanced machinery systems and arrangement result in a vessel with greatly enhanced operability, maintainability and accommodation standards. ONUK MRTP15 Fast Intervention Craft has been designed to carry out a wide range of littoral and coastal water law enforcement and naval duties

As of January 2004, with 18 units in service since 1997 in the Turkish Coast Guard, 4 exported to the international market, 3 delivered Directorate General of Turkish Customs Enforcement and additional units on order within the context of the extended program, after very succesfull performance of the series the "KAAN 15" Class ONUK MRTP15 and its extended and improved version ONUK MRTP15 is an extremely well proven platform.

Depending on engine/configuration selection, the proven ONUK KO-02 deep V hull will enable the boat to reach speeds up to 64 knots in calm waters and above 50 knots in Sea State 3, allowing rapid reaction comparable to a helicopter, and can be used in confined spots or heavy weathers not suitable for helicopter operations.

The seakeeping capabilities of the ONUK MRTP15, used intensively by the Turkish Coast Guard since 1997, are well proven in operation. ONUK MRTP15 has a soft and dry ride in adverse conditions. The steerable Twin Disc Arneson Surface Drive system provides extreme maneuverability and a very shallow draught, enhancing the operation in confined waters. ONUK MRTP15 is one of the fastest known platforms of this size with a mission payload capability in the range of 1,5 tons.

ONUK MRTP15 can be equipped with various mission modules depending on the customer requirements. Despite the size of the platform, these modules have been integrated with the modularity and reconfigurability in objectives in mind. Thus, the platform can be reconfigured with different mission modules, increasing dramatically the operational flexibility and reducing the costs.

The advanced composite "Fast Intervention Craft" ONUK MRTP15 is the extended and improved water jet driven version of the ONUK MRTP15 of the Turkish Coast Guard. ONUK MRTP15 is developed as a versatile Multi Role Tactical Platform ("MRTP") for increasingly tough requirements of the law enforcement and naval forces control the littoral and the coastal waters. Internally, the advanced machinery systems and arrangement result in a vessel with greatly enhanced operability, maintainability and accommodation standards.
