Amphibious: Dry Personnel Insertion  

Copy of Shallow draft showing waterline.jpg

Ideal for the U.S. Marines. The MSV can carry troops in a dry environment, approach an area undetected in waters only 15 feet deep. It can rest, submerged, in the shallows while monitoring beach activity through its photonics mast. When it is time, the MSV can surface, drive onto the beach and deploy troops in waters only 2.5 feet deep. It can then egress and re-submerge while monitoring the egress area and return for troop extraction when needed.
