There are a variety of vehicles that Navy SEALs use when they are carrying out missions. It is vitally important that all Navy SEALs understand the purpose and intricacies of the vehicles that they may use during their missions. All Navy SEALs are of course given sufficient training with each vehicle that they may be asked to use over the course of their years of service in the Navy SEALs.
One of the most commonly used vehicles that Navy SEALs are familiarized with is known as a SEAL Delivery Vehicle. These vehicles are commonly referred to as SDV’s for short. These vehicles operate below the surface the water and are used to covertly transport Navy SEALs to their mission spot.
When using a SEAL Delivery Vehicle the SEALs will use special breathing apparatuses while moving to their location with the aid of the SDV. During this entire time the vehicle will remain submerged under water.
According to the specific mission that the Navy SEALs are undergoing, they may use a SEAL Delivery Vehicle to arrive at their mission spot and to also return to their ship of travel once a mission has been completed. However, in some instances it is only used for one way travel. This is specifically true of the majority of rescue missions wherein the individuals being rescued may not be able to return to the ship or rescue spot using this method of travel due to a lack of training.
