The Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) was a planned amphibious vehicle of the United States Marine Corps (USMC), scheduled for 2015. By the end of 2003, the designation Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAAV) was used.
The vehicle is an amphibious armored passenger transport. Launched from the sea on an amphibious assault ship, it can deploy a squad of naval infantry along the coast.
The EFV was designed to replace the aging AAV7 and would have been the most important acquisition of the USMC in the field of ground-based weapon systems. The speed in the water, the armor and fire power should be significantly increased compared to the AAV.
