LARC-60 Amphibious Vehicle

The LARC-60, an acronym for Lighter, Amphibious Resupply, Cargo, 60-ton, is a class of amphibious cargo vehicles used for transporting goods and personnel over land and water. Developed in the late 1950s for use by the United States military, these vehicles have played a crucial role in logistical operations, particularly in areas where traditional transport methods are not feasible.

Capable of carrying up to 60 tons of cargo or 200 troops, the LARC-60 is powered by four 265 horsepower diesel engines, enabling it to navigate challenging terrains. Its unique design allows it to operate in shallow waters, making it an indispensable tool for beach landings and river crossings.

Despite its age, the LARC-60 continues to see use in various military and civilian applications around the world, a testament to its durability and versatility.
