During World War Two, US and allied forces relied on the landing craft to make the transition from ship to shore in the least amount of time with the least amount of vulnerability. The problem then was that these early landing craft couldn't always reach the beaches and would have to drop troops and vehicles in the water. Their slow speeds also made them vulnerable to shore batteries and machine gun nests.

Decades later, technology has provided a unique solution, the LCAC - Landing Craft Air Cushion. An LCAC can lift the heaviest battle tanks and 'fly' them ashore. There isn't an issue with reefs, marshes, or swamps, the LCAC can float over all of them and take troops and equipment to the hard ground, unload, then fly back to the amphibious asssault ship for the next load.

The LCAC can loft a 60 ton payload at 40 knots, all riding atop an air cushion that is contained with a rubber skirt that has little or no draft.
