An interesting article comparing a World War 2 amphibious landing craft to a more modern amphibious combat vehicle (ACV).  Check it out here:  http://lockheedmartin.com/us/news/features/2015/acv-amphibious-combat-vehicle.html

BADGING:  

  1.  Write a paragraph outlining some of the engineering challenges one faces when designing a craft that can travel on both water and land.  How are some of the challenges overcome by the Lockheed Martin engineers?
  2. Find the percent of increase of the vehicle’s payload from WW2 until the present day (Payload means “amount of weight it can carry”).
  3. Find the percent of increase of the vehicle’s horsepower from WW2 until the present day.
