Default Re: Lvtp5 / Lvtp7

The information I have which is from, "Marines Under Armor" by Marine Lt. Colonel Ken Estes, is: the LVTP7 has a water speed of 8.4 mph, and a ground speed of 45 mph. The current AAV7 is about the same. For the LVTP5 water speed is 6.8 mph, and the ground speed is 30 mph.
