Technologies and Lockheed Martin are working on a new type of military vehicle that will work on both land and water. This is why they named it the Amphibious Combat Craft. On water the vehicle will be able to travel at 45MPH and on land it could travel at 100MPH.

The picture looks like the Delorean in Back To The Future when it flys away. An interesting machine if real. It surprises me something like this doesn't already exist.

I say it's hard to kill a good idea.
Nice of them to rediscover the wheel




The DUKW (popularly pronounced "duck") is a six-wheel-drive amphibious truck that was designed by General Motors Corporation during World War II for transporting goods and troops over land and water and for use approaching and crossing beaches in amphibious attacks.

Well that was back in the day when GM made stuff to last.
Oh well that's an argument for another thread.

Last time I was in Boston, I saw a bunch of those DUKW's on parade carrying the Sox after winning the series. I guess they use em for tours that include a segment on the Charles.

The new ACC looks more like the Gibbs Aquada: LINK
I guess the reason for that would be obvious, though, wouldn't it?

I actually prefer the Rinspeed Splash: LINK

edit for spelling
