The LACV-30 (lighter, air cushion vehicle, 30-ton payload) is being considered as a replacement for existing Army amphibian vehicles. As such, its mission will involve various amphibious operations, including logistics-over-the-shore resupply. At present the Army has only two of the vehicles, one of which has been undergoing operational testing while the second has been undergoing developmental testing. The Army is considering acquiring 28 more LACV-30s at a total cost of more than $110 million.
