Government considering RAM50 / D Hydro purchase
  • To further counter the ISIS threat, the Government of Qatar is actively pursuing permission from the State Department (Green Zone) in an effort to procure 12 RAM50 powered O'Connor D "Stock" hydros equipped with the latest night-vision and celestial navigation equipment.  They have specifically asked for rigs weighing 440 pounds w/driver, with completely "stock" engines due to their proven reliability to 'get-off-the-beach' on demand, plus the ease of 'drying them out' should they get blown over.
