New air cushion landing craft

The new air cushion landing craft will replace the existing landing craft, and its carrying capacity and range will be improved, the report said. In the operation, the amphibious assault ship loads this kind of air cushion landing craft in the dock. After arriving at the enemys offshore, the air cushion landing craft carries personnel or equipment to drive out from the amphibious attack ship and quickly heads for the enemys beach.

It is reported that 12 air cushion landing craft are in production in the shipyard of Textron in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In April this year, the US Navy announced that it would invest $386 million to buy 15 new air cushion landing craft.
