The RHIB (full name: Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat) is a high speed boat used by both the Syndikat and Tanoan civilians. It was added with the release of the Apex DLC.

With a top speed of 95 km/h, the RHIB is currently the fastest water vehicle in ArmA 3.


  • Roles:
    • Troop transport
    • Fast-attack
« The rigid-hulled inflatable boat, (RHIB) is a light-weight but high-performance and high-capacity boat constructed with a solid, shaped hull and flexible tubes at the gunwale. The boat can fit 7 passengers and a driver. RHIB can be used for multiple tasks. It can be a simple transport boat with some countries deploying them for coast guarding. This is in contrast to criminals on Tanoa who use RHIBs as a fast and small smuggling boat.
Field Manual

Design Edit

Fielded by many nations and organisations as a light, versatile boat, the RHIB uses a hybrid design that consists of a reinforced fibreglass hull and an inflatable gunwhale/collar constructed of reinforced fabric.

Boasting an impressive top speed of up to 95 km/h, the RHIB can cut its way through the water with relative ease and handles just as smoothly as the Speedboat when it comes to turning and acceleration. It is also capable of transporting two more passengers compared to its smaller counterpart, the Assault Boat, which can only carry four at a time (not including the driver).

While the RHIB does not possess any weaponry by itself, all passengers are able to fire their own weapons regardless of where they are seated. Much like the Speedboat, the RHIB is too heavy to be lifted by smaller helicopters like the WY-55. However, it can still be airlifted via slingloading with either the Huron or Mi-290 heavy-lift helicopters.

The RHIB has a seating capacity of up to eight personnel (including the driver). Besides the driver, all of the passengers either crouch or sit in the centre and on both sides of the craft.

Camouflage Edit

  • Black: Pattern-less black paint scheme used exclusively by Syndikat RHIBs.
  • Civilian: Two-tone white/cyan paint scheme used on civilian-owned variants.

Trivia Edit

  • As with the Assault Boat, the RHIB could be based on any real-world rigid-hull boat as almost all RHIB-based designs share the same layout and appearance in some way.
