Several of the tasks carried out by the Strb 90 H-variants, were originally intended for the Strb 90 E , which is now almost completely phased out.

The Royal Norwegian Navy evaluated the Strb 90 H in early , and subsequently purchased a total of 20 boats, designated 90 N for Norsk utgave , literally Norwegian version. The Mexican Navy acquired 40 units designated CB 90 HMN between and , and obtained a production license in , allowing further units to be manufactured in Mexico.

Since then eight additional units have been built. This boat was involved in a high-speed chase with three Greenpeace RIBs which were trying to enter the restricted area near the hotel where the meeting was being held.

A video clip of the incident was later widely spread around the internet. In June an unknown buyer from Abu Dhabi bought two civilian luxury versions.

During these six months trials, the two boats and a full Swedish boat squadron were embarked on a Royal Netherlands Navy LPD as a fully integrated element of the amphibious forces aboard and successfully deployed. In JSC Pella Shipyard near St Petersburg launched the first Russian built Project "Raptor", [5] but while the ships are strikingly similar there is no indication Dockstavarvet has been involved or licensed the design to Pella.

In , the Royal Norwegian Navy conducted tests including a live fire exercise to evaluate the effectiveness of the SB90N as an aiming and launching platform for the Hellfire missile. One SB90N was equipped with stabilized Hellfire-launcher based on the Protector RWS , and its machine gun was replaced with a gimbal -mounted sensor package containing visible-light and infrared cameras and a laser designator.

Although the tests were successful, there is currently no indication that the Royal Norwegian Navy will actually deploy SB90Ns armed with Hellfire missiles in regular service. The Hellfire can still be carried on the boats without launching platforms and be fired from shore with the Portable Ground Launch System.

On June 13, , several Strb 90 H from the Swedish Navy 's first amphibious regiment AMF1 were sailing at high speed in convoy formation when one of them abruptly reduced speed allegedly so its wake would not upset a smaller sailboat.

The boat immediately behind it failed to react and rammed it. Two soldiers who were above deck at the time of the accident were thrown in the water; one was killed instantly, and the other sustained severe injuries from which he died later the same day.

It then sank in less than ten minutes. All of the crew of 16 were quickly picked up by other ships that were nearby. No one was physically injured, but the crew suffered from shock and hypothermia when picked up. There were seven crewmen on board.
