Phibian is the platform of the future for medium duty amphibious purposes ranging from logistics to emergency response and rescue.Three crew members and 12 passengers can comfortably fit inside the Phibian, when it’s in passenger-carrying mode.Because it’s smaller and more nimble than the Phibian, it is intended more for use in a light-duty patrol or rapid response role.
