I'm having a hard time picturing the US military sourcing a boat from Dubai, UAE.....

Why not? if the media didn't catch wind of it the US was in negotiations to source 6 of our largest ports to a UAE government owned company.
I sure hope the powers that be source manufacturing here at home... though that RI is a thing of beauty.

I wonder what the "new concept" he mentions is... the more research I do on RIBs the more I realize just about every concept has been attempted. Maybe just a re-visited concept...
