An amphibious vehicle is one that can transition from land to water, and some versions can even be completely submerged under water. There are versions of amphibious vehicles ranging from ATVs, automobiles, buses, bicycles, hovercraft, trucks and of course, military vehicles.
According to Popular Mechanics, which profiled the above video, this amphibious military vehicle is “designed to drive off the lower well deck of a Navy ship and float/drive 21 fully geared-up marines onto shore.”
This is awesome and just shows how cool military vehicles truly are.
