Sharp-eyed observers have spotted U.S. Navy SEALs driving a new but familiar vehicle: modified versions of Yamaha personal watercraft. SEALs were also spotted using magnetic gear to scale the hull of a navy destroyer.
The exercise, held off the Greek island of Crete last October, was documented in a series of images that showed up on the Defense Video Imagery System, or DVIDS. It’s a popular site where U.S. military public affairs share pictures and video of ongoing military operations around the world. Many of the photos appearing on Popular Mechanics are sourced from DVIDS.
A series of photographs from the October 2017 joint Greek-U.S. Navy special operations forces exercise shows SEALs using several means to board the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Porter. The exercise documents divers underwater and also a SEAL aboard a personal watercraft (also known as a Jet Ski).
