Description: The United States Marine Corps (USMC) Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connecter (UHAC) is an amphibious landing vehicle using an hydrofoil lander system to walk on water and on the ground. The UHAC is being designed to land up to three heavy tanks such as the M1A1 Abrams on enemy shores at once. The production UHAC landing craft is expected to deliver up to 200 tons of cargo onshore after crossing up to 200 nautical miles from the carrier ship. It will be 25 meters long and 10 meters high with a top speed of about 20 knots. Nevertheless, the UHAC will cost half than current LCAC hovercrafts but carrying far more cargo but at lower speed. Its propulsion system is based upon huge runners made up of low pressure captive air cells contained within foam casings. Thanks to those runners, the UHAC should also be able to move across difficult terrains, including marshes, mud flats, and even sea walls up to 10 feet high. The USMC made public the new landing craft development and testing in July 2014.
