Lockheed Martin and Gibbs Working On Amphibious Combat Craft

Posted May 21, 2009

Gibbs Technologies and Lockheed Martin are working on a new type of military vehicle that will work on both land and water.  This is why they named it the Amphibious Combat Craft.  On water the vehicle will be able to travel at 45MPH and on land it could travel at 100MPH.

The vehicles will come in three models:
1. The Amphibious Combat Craft Expeditionary (ACC-E) is a 20 foot sized vehicle with capabilities to go up to 45MPH on water and 80MPH on land. (8 occupants)
2. The Amphibious Combat Craft Expeditionary (ACC-R) is a 35 foot sized vehicle with capabilities to go up to 40MPH on water. (20 occupants)
3. The Terraquad is capable of over 55MPH on water and 50MPH on land. (2 occupants)
