Digital displays are an integral part of the EFV for displaying maps and vehicle control systems. The vehicle is also set to include state-of-the-art voice and data communications.
Even with the technical advances, the quarters will continue to be cramped. The EFV will have a crew of three and is designed to transport 17 combat-equipped Marines.
A 2,700-horsepower engine will propel the EFV through the water at up to 25 knots, and on land at up to 45 miles per hour. Operational testing is scheduled for the summer.
