  See that "thing" up there?  That is the new Marine Corps heavy lift vehicle for moving equipment from Navy landing ships to shore.  The treads are made of a foam, that provides floatation, and cuts down weight.
  It can carry tanks or large trucks in its cargo hold and can climb walls up to twelve feet high.
