Well, it looks like a nice boat. If it was to insert troops into enemy territory, it doesn't look very defendable, so maybe an escort from another vehicle with sufficient protection?

The mission would be to insert SEALS covertly, which would have them going into lightly defended areas. I'm sure the production version would also have weapons that could be pulled into the hull for stealthiness, and deployed for insertion. That's how the F-117 does it. Everything retracts into the airframe. This would probably be a similar system.

There's a link to Wikipedia on the USS Sea Shadow (IX-529). It was made on the 1st of March 1985. It was more of a testing ground, considering it wasn't made mission capable nor was it commissioned.

It WAS just a testbed for a new concept, but it was a classified project for years before anyone knew about it. The only reason they finally came out with the information about it was because they had to do daylight trials with it, in San Fransisco Bay. It was the same with the F-117 Nighthawk. They had to do some daylight flights with it so they decided to come out and show the world the plane. Sea Shadow was the concept for the new Arsenal Ships they are designing and trying to develop. No on deck weapons, just vertical missile launchers inside the hull, and stealth characteristics.

A example of a ship being camouflaged would be the Carrier Nimitz. It left port out of Italy in the middle of the night, the rigging was changed to look like the rigging and lighting of a freight ship. The diesel motor sound for a freighter was played over loudspeakers as it left port. Later that same night another vessel left port with expanded lighting to resemble the carrier and went in a different direction out of the port. This resulted in the unknown location of one of the biggest US Ships abroad for almost 2 weeks. While this is not the same as structural changes to hide during the day it is camouflage...
