The RNOV Al Naasir (S12) is the second of two 72 metre High-Speed Support Vessels (HSSV’s) delivered to the Royal Navy of Oman under a US$124.9 million design, construct and integrated logistics support contract.

With a large, 900 square metre vehicle deck, seating capacity for 260 embarked troops and a top speed of 38 knots, the all-aluminium HSSV offers a range of capabilities to support naval operations, including; helicopter operations, rapid deployment of military personnel and cargo, humanitarian, disaster relief and search and rescue operations.

Based on the proven 103 metres Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF) vessel - developed by Austal for the US Navy - the HSSV offers outstanding multi-mission flexibility and is redefining naval capability.
