Future Development Prospects

A. Self River Crossing Pump Jet

Project Name: Self River Crossing Pump-Jet Propulsion System
Estimated Window: Production from year 2020
Quantity: 109(Pump-Jet Propeller - 218)
Est. Unit Price: US $800,000 / Vehicle (Total $87.2 Million)
Configuration:
  • Equipment type : Amphibious Self River Crossing Pump-Jet
  • Equipment Weight : Below 45 tons
  • Maneuver Speed : Above 70km/h on paved road, and above 10km/h on water
