In the race to develop the first the monster truck of the sea, victory goes to the U.S. Marines.

This is a fully-functional, half-scale prototype of a brand new amphibious transport vehicle, and you know it’s a military project as soon as you hear the name: Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connecter (UHAC). Whether it’s towing a distressed ship to shore or plowing over enemy defenses, the proposed full-size version is designed to strong-arm its way through many a tall task. It can carry a payload of nearly 200 tons at up to 23 mph, and once it hits shore it can drive over the top of anything up to 10 feet high. The UHAC gets its amphibious skills from the tank-like tracks that are fitted with captured-air foam cells to provide buoyancy when in the water. No word yet on whether a full-scale version will be produced, though.
