Trust me. Hitting the water at 60 mph will hurt! (Don't ask me how I know!)



I hope these are better than the orginal Wetbike. That pig was horribly slow and heavy.

Looks like someone sees the $5 billion being pissed away every week in Iraq and has visions of bellying up to the defense spending trough.





"Aquajet partned with Vehicle Design Force (VDF) to develop the military version – an ultra-fast, long-range, highly-maneovrable, ultra-compact, quiet and stealthy Jetbike with an advanced tactical weapon system. They started with a machine that already had the highest power to weight ratio of any manned military ground vehicle system, then packed it with surveillance equipment and topped it off with firepower to spare.



The multi-mission capable platform can be fitted with lightweight small caliber machine guns, rocket launchers, GPS, radar, night vision and itÂ’s clearly an ideal stealth platform for Special Forces into and out of a trouble zone fast with reliability, minimal detection and lots of firepower."
