Going into the ocean in those things was one of the few things that truly unnerved me.

Prayers for the Marines on board. RIP to the deceased.

One of the scariest things I can think of. I never could understand how someone can be comfortable inside any vehicle that submerges.

God bless them, rest in peace.

Prayers out.

This article states the AAV sank on its way back, which would be interesting if it did indeed launch from ship and make landing for training before sinking on the return after exercise. https://abcnews.go.com/US/marine-dea...ry?id=72099614

Article also says other AAVs and a safety boat tried to help... making me wonder just how fast it sank?

I was originally thinking that it did not "pop up" again after launching from ship, but if this is not the case, it definitely adds some questions.

I believe they scrapped the EFV over budget issues about a decade ago and the ACV program was moving slowly?

Best wishes to all involved for safe recovery of those still missing.
