    Armored Amphibian Tanks and Landing Craft

    Some sites concerning the landing craft and amphibious tanks used by US and Japanese forces in WWII.

    Despite the establishment of the Marine Corps Equipment Board in 1933, little could be done with the scant$40,000 in the R&D budget. Yet, when World War II ignited Europe in September 1939, the Navy had 35 of the 30-foot personnel landing boats and 11 lighters for tanks and artillery.

    Two years later the expanding conflict had helped the inventory grow to 1,285 boats, 303 lighters, and “300 amphibian tractors under construction.” These unique vehicles,born of civilian rather than military needs, would come to play such a vital role in the Pacific War that Gen H. M. Smith would declare “without (them) our amphibious offensive would have been impossible.”
