    The Special Operations Craft-Riverine performs short-range insertion and extraction of SOF in riverine and littoral environments.

    The SOC-R is also used by U.S. Navy riverine forces for in-shore interdiction, riverine patrolling and direct action missions.

    The SOC-R is a high-performance craft sized to permit air transport aboard C-130 or larger military aircraft. Each craft is manned by a crew of four Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen and can carry eight SOF personnel.
