The design allows the Victa to be dropped into the sea from a military aircraft or be released from the hull of a Royal Navy sub.

Made by SubSea Craft in Gosport, Hampshire, the vessel features elements contributed by Olympic sailing champion Sir Ben Ainslie from his racing yacht designs.

A Royal Navy source said: ‘For decades, we’ve been waiting for a vessel to be developed which is effective on the surface of the water and below. The enemy won’t be able to see or hear us coming. Given the threat to British ships in the Strait of Hormuz, its arrival is very timely.’

Brigadier Tim Chicken, a former Royal Marine commander in Afghanistan who now works for SubSea Craft said: ‘Our design is truly cutting edge. Victa opens up potentially game changing tactical and strategic choices in maritime, joint and special operations.’
