Caimen Landing Craft

BMT’s Caimen designs meet the modern demand for affordable and adaptable fast landing crafts. Fundamental to BMT's Caimen designs are flexibility, increased speeds and enhanced safety functions.

The Caimen-200 is a simple design that incorporates key benefits important for supporting expeditionary operations worldwide, ranging from amphibious assault to disaster relief and humanitarian aid/evacuation.

Logistical throughput is improved by almost doubling current large amphibious assault craft speed, enabling more weight and firepower of amphibious forces to be deployed in a shorter time and thus achieving greater military effect.

BMT's Caimen-90 Fast is a highly capable tri-bow fast landing craft designed by BMT Defence Services and BMT Nigel Gee which addressed many design and safety challenges for light weight, fast landing craft and reduced host ship vulnerability.  It is able to operate at high speeds with heavy payloads, allowing faster amphibious offload from a host ship compared with slower, more conventional landing craft.

Caimen-60 combines the best of current LCM design and technology with the revolutionary BMT tri-bow hullform to sit at the leading edge of the performance envelope for a landing craft of its size. Its simple design ensures rapid transit and delivery of vehicles, equipment and troops from a host ship to the shore and vice versa.
