Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) Family of Vehicles (FOV)

The ACV is the Corps’ next-generation vehicle designed to move Marines from ship to shore. The ACV is a full replacement for the 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 support expeditionary mobility capability and capacity with balanced levels of performance, protection, and payload. The vehicles within the ACV FoV program are a personnel carrier (ACV-P), command and control (ACV-C), a medium caliber cannon (ACV-30) and maintenance/recovery (ACV-R).

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.
