They were awarded a 25 million dollar contract to provide Combat Rubber Raiding Craft for the US Military.

Replacing older Zodiac Commandos.

These have composite transom and floors. No speed tubes needed. Single point inflation and zero maintenance cross over valves. Approx same price as Zodiacs.

Made in the USA

I bought one of the Wing 4.7 SIB's last year and have used the heck out of it...typical awesome Wing construction and lighter than my Zodiac F470 or my Achilles 15'....

Welded PU instead of Hypalon/CSM too.

During work, I get to drive past their facility a couple times a week. When they have the big bay doors open, I feel like a kid looking through the toy store window.
Every once in a while, you'll see the boats being tested on the bay.
