Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)

The Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV), previously known as the 'Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle' (AAAV), represents a new step into the modernization of current US amphibious assault vehicles.
Due to certain circumstances in TAOW's history, the USMC (United States Marine Corps) requested that the production of the EFV's would commence and therefore these will be deployed as a later "upgrade-replacement" of the AAVP-7A1's.

Just like the AAVP-7A1, this vehicle will be deployed from ships with the objective to land squads of Marines on the shores. The EFV is much more armored, much faster and carries heavier armament than the AAVP.
