Queensland Police specs Aquatruck for Commonwealth Games protectorate role
One of Australia’s largest police and public safety organisations QPS selected PFG - AQUATRUCK HDPE fast onshore patrol boats for a special security and protectorate detail during the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. Security forces are very aware of the newest threats from improvised devices such as drones, and close quarter fast response vehicles form an important part of these counter measures to protect the public.
PFG - AQUATRUCK vessels are ideal for these roles, they are completely adept at hard beaching on any shore and are positive buoyant even when breached. They have exceedingly responsive WOT performance and offer good crew protection, even the HDPE has natural ballistic protective characteristics.
