The 30-ton Marine Corps amphibious assault vehicles are the “the number one vehicle” to perform the amphibious assault mission, a Marine told Insider during a recent visit to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. These lightly-armored, fully-tracked vehicles are able to operate in the water and on land and are essential for getting Marines from ship to shore.
