Abstract:

Todays generation of defense planners realize that to fight and win on tomorrows battlefields, the US Marine Corps will require more tactical mobility than is presently provided by Landing Vehicle Tracked LVT and helicopter assets. A number of innovations are on the drawing boards and in the test-beds that will dramatically change the way Marines fight in the future. The author discusses the impact of the US Navys new Landing Craft Air-Cushioned LCAC and how it will combine with current and planned USMC troop-lift assets to provide the Corps with enhanced tactical mobility.
