Default Re: Lvtp5 / Lvtp7

A 6 knots (6.9 mph) water speed has been quite consistent in my notes on the LVT-5.

7 to 8 knots (8 to 9 mph) is the range I have for the LVT-7.
I believe the early models were on the lower end then an engine upgrade brought them to the higher end, then with the conversion to the AAV model (different turret, more armor, new engine) they went back to the lower end.

But then does 1 mph one way or the other matter *chuckles*

Sorry I don't have any source references for you. Maybe you can consider it independent confirmation.
