Advanced Amphibious Assault


Program Manager Advanced Amphibious Assault (PM AAA) delivers and supports operationally effective and suitable amphibious vehicle capabilities meet the needs of an expeditionary force across the range of military operations—on time and at an acceptable cost.


Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV)

The ACV is the Corps’ next-generation vehicle designed to move Marines from ship to shore. Designed to replace the Corps’ aging Amphibious Assault Vehicle, the ACV will be the primary means of tactical mobility for the Marine infantry battalion at sea and ashore. The ACV will possess ground mobility and speed similar to the M1A1 tank during sustained operations ashore and have the capability to provide organic, direct fire support to dismounted infantry in the attack. The ACV will support expeditionary mobility capability and capacity with balanced levels of performance, protection and payload. 

Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV)

The AAV, initially fielded in 1972, remains the primary general-support armored personnel carrier for Marines. The AAV family of vehicles consists of a personnel, a command and control, and a recovery variant. The Amphibious Combat Vehicle will eventually replace the AAV family of vehicles.
