About the LCM-3 – Landing Craft Mechanized:

The LCM (Landing Craft Mechanized) was capable of loading and off-loading a 30-ton tank or some 60 fully geared soldiers, almost double that of the LCVP. While the original design was created in the United States, several different designs were composed by manufacturers in both the US and UK. Because of the success of the base design, the LCM was used regularly in Allied amphibious landings at Normandy, in the Pacific, and beyond. Specifically, the LCM-3 featured a 10-foot-wide loading/unloading area at the front and an armored wheelhouse on the aft decking over the engine room, making it ideal for transporting essential armor and fire power to support troops during such missions.
