Wasn't the reason that development of the personal stand-on helicopter was dropped by the US Army in the 60s/70s because a soldier was way too vulnerable when flying on the platform? The same thing surely applies to ship boarding. I suppose one might argue that a RIB or helicopter is equally vulnerable, so this is no worse and expands the range of boarding options.

I wonder if this is more of a recruiting tool. It's something nice to think of while you're going through the hellfun of training or sitting neck-deep in a bog in a jungle somewhere.
