US Marines Displays Half-Scale Prototype of Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector UHAC
Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector (UHAC) of United States Marine Corps is designed and manufactured to transport U.S Marine Corps vehicles with heavy loads from ship to shore.
It's also designed to be an experimental vehicle to explore and insert Marines in the areas where modern technology is not likely to explore and insert. A fully-functional and half-scale prototype of UHAC is displayed and tested by U.S Marines at RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific), 2014. The half-scale demonstrator is 13m long and 5m high. The full-size version of this beast is designed to be capable of transporting with a payload of 180 tons at up to 37km/h.
The full-size UHAC is planned to be 26m long and 10m high. Currently, the full-sized UHAC is still a project waiting to be realized between U.S ONR and Singapore Ministry of Defense.
