A jet ski in real life

The Personal Water Craft (PWC) also known as a jet ski is a high-speed boat designed to transport two people into enemy territory in a stealthy manner. The PWC is unarmed and driver and passenger are extremely vulnerable to attack. However, the passenger in the back can use his primary and secondary weapons along with his grenades. What it lacks in power, it makes up for with speed, agility and efficiency.

However, the jet ski is very fast, but has almost no armor, and can be quickly destroyed by continuous small arms fire. It is more frequently used when speed and stealth is more important than the quantity of attackers.
