All ashore who’s going ashore- the US Army project that will introduce a new generation of landing craft is in the works, according to the company who makes them.
Vigor Works, a Washington state company, is developing the Maneuver Support Vessel (Light), which will bring Army troops, vehicles, and material to hostile beachheads and riverbanks across the world.
The Army is a sizeable navy in itself, with more boats than the US Navy. While nowhere as grand as aircraft carriers or nuclear submarines, the vessels often go on year-long deployments.
According to Defense News, Vigor Works utilize a cool $1 billion in contract money to develop a full-scale prototype for the boat over the next four years, then move to the initial production of four vessels before pumping out 36 more by 2022.
