U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Roger Skilling operates an assault amphibious vehicle (AAV) during a simulated amphibious raid with Thai marines at Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training 2013 in Hat Yao, Thailand, June 10, 2013.

The Marine Corps is looking to replace for the old, reliable — make that very old — AAV, which has been around since the early 1970s.

Skilling is assigned to the 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, attached to Combat Assault Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force.

How low in the water is the AAV operator? The photo below should answer that question.
