美国陆战队作战实验室（MCWL）在环太平洋军事演习（RIMPAC 2014）中测试了其新型超重型两栖登陆艇的测试机（UHAC，Ultra Heavy-lift Amphibious Connector）。该装备采用水陆两栖艇设计，具备现有登陆艇三倍提升能力和搭载能力，更大于现役气垫登陆艇（LCAC）。目前的测试机仅是全尺寸的一半大小，全尺寸两栖登陆艇将至少能够携带3辆坦克和轮式车辆，并会安装装甲防护和自卫武器.
This is a half-scale prototype of the Ultra Heavy-lift Amphibious Connector (UHAC）
Meet the Ultra Heavy-lift Amphibious Connector, or UHAC, currently being developed by the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab as a potential replacement for the Navy's current ship-to-shore hovercraft.
The photo above is just a half-scale model: a full-scale version will sit some 34 feet high and 84 feet long.
The secret behind this machine is foam tracks with captive air cells, which allow it to propel itself through the water at up to 20 knots, and then move onto land.
Because it has a very low ground pressure footprint–about one pound per square inch–it can cross marsh land and mud flats easily.
The tracks can also crawl up a sea wall up to ten feet high.
And the payload of the UHAC is huge: about three times that of the Marines' current ship-to-shore craft, the Landing Craft Air Cushion.
