[About the actual vehicle]
--The amphibious assault vehicle operated by the US Marine Corps is the AAV7A1.
--Initially, it was formalized under the name of LVTP-7, and changed to AAVP-7 from 1985.
――LVTP-7A1 is also called AAVP-7A1.
--The amphibious personnel carrier LVTP-7, which began development in the latter half of the 1960s as a successor to the LVTP-5 used in the Vietnam War, was formalized in 1970 and has been in operation since 1972. It was started.
-The aluminum alloy body is amphibious, the swivel turret is equipped with a 12.7mm machine gun, and the troop room is capable of accommodating 25 fully armed soldiers.
――After that, the LVTP-7A1 / AAVP-7A1 was refurbished with the aim of improving the performance of the LVTP-7 / AAVP-7.
--The engine has been replaced with a Cummins 4-stroke V8 liquid-cooled turbocharged diesel engine, and the capacity has been improved by increasing the size of the cupola.
――In 1993, EAAK, an extended appliqué armor that can be equipped by bolt-on, was also developed and the armor was strengthened.
