Let's see your best military boat pics

OK - lets see your best pictures featuring military boats!!

No ships please and try and keep it to RIBS but the odd "hard boat" won't be ridiculed too much!

Here's my starter for ten ........

1) One of the RAF Sailing Association's 585 Ribcrafts
2) Arctic with twin 250 two strokes
3) Navy Pacific
4) Clyde MOD Plod
5) Arctic - not sure where though
