Video: CMN's HSI32 Interceptor Demonstrating its Thrilling Speed of 53 Knots in Sea Trials
 
French shipyard CMN has just released a video showing its HSI32 Interceptor reaching a maximum speed of 53 knots. This is an amazing and rare achievement for a military vessel since it translates into 61 Mph or 98 Km/h ! We reported a couple weeks ago that the HSI32 already reached the speed of 47 Knots during its initial sea trials.
