CNIM unveils more powerful and up-armored LCAT Mk2 landing craft

Amphibious warfare is evolving towards more contested environments and so are the platforms used to support such operations. during euronaval online, cnim lifts the veil on a faster, more protected and armed variant of its well-known lcat catamaran landing craft..

Nathan Gain 22 Oct 2020

Dubbed LCAT Mk2, this enhanced version « is reinforced on a number of points based on feedback from the French and Egyptian navies » , Xavier Montazel, CNIM Defence and Maritime Division told Naval News.

The powerpack is 20% more powerful than the one installed in the LCAT Mk1 and made of four 1340 kw MTU engines. The dynamics of the vessel are also improved by the addition of a second foil forward. « This allows, with the power increase, to significantly increase the speed, going from 18 knots to 25 knots loaded, and from 30 knots to 35 knots once unladen ».

The LCAT Mk2 receives improved protection and armament systems. « We are now offering a version with two 20 mm remotely operated weapon systems located at the bow, as well as two 12.7 mm machine guns at the stern, compared to a mix of 12 .7 mm and 7.62 mm with the Mk1 version ». The wheelhouse has been extended and up-armored in order to protect the crew from potential attacks when the ship approaches the landing area.

With the Mk2 evolution, CNIM is clearly targeting the export market as France does not plan an upgrade program for the four EDA-R the French Navy commissioned between 2011 and 2012. « On the other hand, several foreign customers are now interested in high-speed amphibious vessels ».

« The LCAT Mk2 makes it possible to definitively position it as a direct competitor of the American LCAC for navies interested in high speed amphibious operations. It is still reserved for a few navies, but we are comparable in speed with an LCAC but with ease of use and maintenance cost that are much more lower ». Xavier Montazel, head of CNIM Defense and Maritime Division

Technical characteristics of the LCAT Mk2

  • Length / Width: 30 m / 12 m
  • Draft at full load: 1 m
  • Speed at full load / empty: 25 / 35 kts
  • Normal / Maximum payload: 80 / 100 t
  • Platform area: 127 m2
  • Sea state: up to 5
  • Weapons: 2 x 20 mm RCWS + 2 x 12.7 mm

The CNIM Group launches the shore-to-shore L-CAT®

L-cat® ship adapts to autonomous amphibious operations.

On the occasion of the 2016 Euronaval Exhibition, which is taking place from 17 to 21 October 2016 in Paris, CNIM is presenting the new version of its L-CAT® Landing Catamaran.

Following the L-CAT® Ship-to-Shore version that is primarily operated on the basis of a BPC1, this is the 100% “Shore-to-Shore” version.

The L-CAT® Shore-to-Shore can operate on the basis of any coastal infrastructure: port, quay, slipway, beach. It has a greater range in order to ensure, with full autonomy and independence, a rapid connection and to disembark materiel and troops. Whereas the L-CAT® Ship-to-Shore benefitted from the protection of its mother ship (type BPC), the L-CAT® Shore-to-Shore is an autonomous system with its own means of communication, detection and self-defense. Going beyond amphibious operations, it responds perfectly to current maritime security needs, as well as to civil assistance requirements, such as the evacuation of populations or citizens in disaster-stricken areas.

Greater distances covered with full autonomy The L-CAT® is an amphibious logistical support ship capable of rapidly transporting heavy loads. It can deploy an infantry platoon (40+ soldiers), a main battle tank (Leclerc, M1 Abrams or Leopard 2), armored vehicles and military equipment or rescue equipment when disasters strike. Its design is unique: thanks to its front and rear ramps and the movement of its platform, which is raised during transit and is lowered for disembarkation with a small draft, it allows for safe and rapid disembarkation. Therefore, the L-CAT® simultaneously has, in a unique design, the capabilities of both a high-speed catamaran and a landing barge.

Initially designed to depart from a well deckand to fulfil ship-to-shore or even shore-to-shore missions, this “two-in-one” ship is now available in a 100% Shore-to-Shore version in order to respond to intervention requirements with full autonomy and over greater distances. As a direct consequence of this, the cargo capacity of the L-CAT® Shore-to-Shore has been increased from the 80 metric tons for the L-CAT® Ship-to-Shore. It can travel more than 800 NM up to sea state 5.

Reinforced seaworthiness and autonomy Hydrodynamic optimizations have made it possible to improve its behavior at sea when forced to ride waves, accelerate or maneuver. Initially mobile in the ship-to-shore version, its wheelhouse that is now fixed ensures 360° peripheral vision, guaranteeing optimal visibility in navigation and operation. Spacious, it can accommodate up to four crew members, which enables the command personnel to be centralized. The improvements in terms of navigation are supplemented by a new superstructure design for the ship. The superstructures aim to provide more comfortable living conditions and a better reception area for the crew members and embarked personnel while in transit, thanks to new facilities in the cabins, command post and engine rooms. The fuel consumption of the L-CAT® shore-to-shore is optimized with regard to its new hydrodynamic performance. The move to a single propulsion line per hull, each being composed of an engine and a pump-jet, also enables operating and maintenance costs to be significantly reduced. In terms of its means of self-defense, the L-CAT® is also protected and armed, primarily thanks to the integration of tele-operated cannons and armor-protected areas. It is therefore capable of defending itself, further reinforcing its operational autonomy. To this end, it also has improved communication capabilities, including a tactical data link and 360° optronic detection.

CNIM: a specialist in amphibious operations “The operational requirements of navies consist in covering significant distances rapidly due to the area of their maritime territory and accessing undeveloped shores. Moreover, even in ship-to-shore designs, it is important to provide command ships with cover. In certain coastal areas, such as those in Asia, there are high-level tensions. Certain navies are seeking to benefit from the disembarkation capabilities without possessing a mother ship”, explains Matthias Bayart, Director of Defense Activity at CNIM. “At last, as a specialist in crossing solutions for the French Army, we have developed the ship that serves to land terrestrial forces”. The L-CAT® shore-to-shore responds perfectly to the combined land-sea requirements with an unequalled level of performance. With the L-CAT® and its two-in-one functions, CNIM has consolidated its leadership in amphibious operations”. Since 2011, the L-CAT® has proven its worth in the French Navy, which uses four L-CAT® vessels designated EDA-R (Engin de Débarquement Amphibie Rapide – rapid amphibious landing craft), receiving excellent feedback via missions carried out on an international level. In April 2015, for example, the speed and disembarkation capabilities of the L-CAT® played a major role in the success of a high-risk operation to rescue civilians isolated in Yemen. Forty-four civilians were removed from danger. Moreover, the Egyptian Navy has just acquired two L-CAT® vessels. The first, attached to the BPC Gamal Abdel Nasser, has been in service since 1 June 2016. The second, attached to the BPC Anouar el Sadate, shall be delivered in September 2016 after the Egyptian crew members have been trained by CNIM in Saint-Nazaire.

Built in 2008, the first L-CAT®, for its part, has found a new vocation, that of carrying out tests on naval equipment at sea in order to approve their actual performance. The L-CAT® is currently being chartered to carry out acoustic sonar measurement trials in order to optimize the high-speed operations of that equipment. The fact that it has an operational working or storage surface of over 120 m2 has also aroused the interest of practitioners of anti-submarine combat – proof that the L-CAT® can provide genuine additional operational and logistical support in all circumstances.

L-CAT landing catamaran: New shore-to-shore version

156850 L-cat

The L-CAT or Landing Catamaran is a fast landing craft developed by CNIM, part of the France-based CNIM Group. The French Navy has had four in operation since 2012 and the Egyptian Navy two since 2016, both navies using them with their Mistral-class force projection vessels.

The L-CAT has aluminium hulls and a central lift platform rated at 80t that can be raised or lowered to allow loading and unloading of armoured vehicles, including a main battle tank. With a full load and the platform raised, the L-CAT has a top speed of 18kts. To unload, the platform is lowered, transforming the vessel into a beachable flat-bottomed landing craft. The L-CAT’s forward and aft ramps give it a roll-on/roll-off capability that greatly facilitates manoeuvres and makes it easier to manage cargo and equipment in the mother vessel’s well dock.

156843 L-cat

Compared with conventional landing craft, L-CAT offers improved speed, endurance, seakeeping and flexibility for more efficient amphibious operations. It can also be deployed further from the coast for surprise attacks while the mother ship remains out of range of enemy defences.

Building on the L-CAT’s success, CNIM has also developed a shore-to-shore version to transport combatants and their equipment from one port or beach to another. With good endurance and its own communications systems, sensors and self-defence weapons, the new type offers a payload of 100 tonnes, a panoramic bridge and improved passenger conditions for longer transits. It is thus ideal for coastal security operations and civilian evacuation and humanitarian.

CNIM: the Landing catamaran (L-CAT) successfully completes its 150th "beaching" in front of a delegation of members of the NATO Parliament

CNIM: the Landing catamaran (L-CAT) successfully completes its 150th "beaching"

in front of a delegation of members of the NATO Parliament

On September 30th, 2010, the CNIM Landing catamaran (L-CAT) conducted its 150th "beaching" since the beginning of its testing in the Mediterranean Sea.  Let us remind that the L-CAT is a CNIM innovation allowing to associate the qualities of a catamaran sailing with the "beaching" function of a landing ship.

Eight units from this particular concept named EDA-R (Rapid Amphibious Landing Vessels) were ordered by the French General Delegation for Armament to embark on Projection and Command Ships of Mistral 1 type.

This 150th ceremony took place in front of a delegation of members of the NATO Parliament invited to discover the L-CAT. This group included representatives from Bulgaria, Canada, Hungary, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

The members of Parliament embarked on the CNIM Landing Catamaran "L-CAT" from the naval base of Toulon, then at the conclusion of its offshore demonstration, the L-Cat made its "beaching" on the beach of Saint-Mandrier. Finally they joined the CNIM site of Brégaillon / Lagoubran at la Seyne-sur-Mer for a visit of the production facilities.

With this 150th successful operation, the CNIM L-CAT becomes the French amphibious landing vessel which currently has to its credit the largest number of successful "beaching".
