----------

Further informaton added (- Beth):
VICTA combines the speed, range and capacity of a Long-Range Insertion Craft with the stealth and versatility of a Swimmer Delivery Vehicle. Designed around the operator, its 30 kt+ speed, 250 nm endurance and 2-minute transition between surface and sub-surface, enables delivery of 8 operators and their equipment to their objective ‘mission-ready’ before recovering them – rapidly and covertly.

The company are making progress

Also I learned this DDU can now act as a USV / UUV too (and I think they are pitching it for Wraith)
