Republic of China Marine Corps AAV7

The Republic of China Marine Corps has used the Landing Vehicle, Tracked, Personnel, Mark 5 for many years. The LVTP5 is a large vehicle with an inverted V-shaped bow that was built for a more efficient water operation and its date of acceptance was 1956. The Taiwan (Republic of China) government purchased 54 AAVs (48 AAV P7a1’s, 4 AAV R7A1’s and 2 AAV C7A1). A letter of Agreement was entered into by the Marine Corps and the Taiwan Governement to refurbish the 54 AAVs under the Marine Corps AAV Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability/Rebuild Standard (AAV RAM/RS). This is a huge leap in equipment capabilities for the Taiwan Marine Corps.
