The Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector (UHAC) is the latest innovation from the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab, in conjunction with the Office of Naval Research, which is essentially a monster amphibious assault vehicle.

- Carry payloads up to 190 tons
- Speeds up to 20 knots
- Climb sea walls up to 10 feet in height
