The Marines have been using amphibious assault vehicles (AAV) since 1937. They solve a critical amphibious assault problem, which is how to move the attacking force from their ships to the beach and to move them inland if required.

The Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) is the USMC’s replacement for their aging AAVs. The mission requirements of the EFV will be to provide a high-speed transport of Marine infantry from ships located beyond the horizon to inland objectives, and to provide an armor-protected land mobility and direct fire support during combat operations.
