    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.

    The UHAC began testing in early July and can do a whole slew of things, including landing multiple tanks at once and bringing ashore equipment, vehicles and troops.

    UHAC Features:

    • Carry payloads up to 190 tons
    • Speeds up to 20 knots
    • Climb sea walls up to 10 feet in height
    • Capable of carrying three battle tanks up to 200 nautical miles
