WATCH: Navy ‘Swicks’ Fire GAU-17 Miniguns From Spec-Ops Boat

Recommended Posts

While SEALs are the most well-known amongst the U.S. Navy‘s Spec Op units, the Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewmen program (SWCC) takes it to a different level.

“Swicks,” as its pronounced, are referred to as the “best-kept secret in the U.S. Navy.”

The SWCC program lasts 37 weeks. The training results in a 60 to 65 percent attrition rate. In total, there are only 800 Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen in the entire Navy.

Training on the GAU-17 Miniguns

The U.S. Navy recently released a SWCC training video. It features plenty of hand-to-hand combat and physical fitness training. But it also features a real treat: GAU-17 miniguns.

Aboard a Special Operations Craft-Riverine (SOC-R), SWCC trainees are shown firing the miniguns, along with several other machine guns, at a rapid pace.

Watch the entire video above.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
