For the Marine Corps, launching an assault on the beach is never easy. There are numerous factors to consider, which complicates the process. Some of the factors they have to consider include sea state, enemy defenses, the maneuverability of nearby enemy armies, range of landing craft, potential casualty rate, availability of logistical support upon landing, and the like. All of these factors are very important to reduce the risk of failure when launching a beach assault. In most cases, Marines launch an assault on the beach by beginning with an aerial and missile bombardment, followed by launching an amphibious landing craft and the arrival of AAV. After that, AAV’s assault beach begins, followed by the dropping of the V22 and Super Stallions. Finally, landing heavy armor and logistical support will begin.
