Description

The Landing Vehicle Tracked (LVT) is an amphibious warfare vehicle and amphibious landing craft, introduced by the United States Navy. The Marine Corps and Army used several LVT models during World War II and the Korean War. Originally intended solely as cargo carriers for ship to shore operations, they evolved into assault troop and fire support vehicles.

In Korea, LVTs were used in the 1950 Inchon landing and subsequent Han River crossing to re-take Seoul. It was also used in the evacuation of Hungnman Harbout when Chinese forces attacked. The LVT was used by USMC in Korea in the role of an armored personnel carrier on land and as an amphibious vehicle.
