Everyone amongst fifty-fifty a passing involvement inwards WW2, High German armor as well as amphibious operations knows well-nigh the Landwasserschlepper (above), the Nazi logistics/amphibian.
What they mightiness non know well-nigh is the instant business office of the vehicle system…the amphibious trailer…Below are a few pics of the consummate system….
Its genuinely pretty impressive. While the Landwasserschlepper could behave approx xx troops the trailer would add together an additional 10-20 tons of cargo to each trip.
What is the lesson for today? The AAV, follow on ACV volition lose their cargo carrying powerfulness due to boom seats existence installed. Could a few Amphibious Trailers brand upwards for this shortfall?
I only don’t know.
What I create know is that the Ground Combat Element is depending to a greater extent than as well as to a greater extent than on aviation for transportation, fires…and logistics.
What happens if a cunning, clever as well as savage enemy create upwards one’s hear to challenge, degrade and/or eliminate the aviation business office of our scrap squad because they realize how reliant nosotros are on it? How create nosotros provide our Marines then?
