Office of Naval Research talks high water speed Amphibious Combat Vehicle.
Did ONR say that they needed to deliver a high water speed amphibian to the Marine Corps within 10 years?
Did they just let the cat out of the bag that the ACV 1.1 is about to be cancelled and they're gonna wait for this mythical ACV 2.0?
Sidenote: ONR is a place where projects go to die...or be delayed till they're available thru industry. Remember that "program" they had to have civilians design the next generation amphibious combat vehicle? It went nowhere but simply gave leadership an excuse to delay the program a couple of years.
