RCBs were originally used in shallow-water and tropic environments, now joining operation in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility, these boats have been repurposed for open-sea patrol. CTG 56.7 conducts maritime security operations to ensure freedom of movement for strategic shipping and Naval vessels operating in the inshore and coastal areas in the 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
