SAN DIEGO – The U.S. Marine Corps will keep its new amphibious combat vehicle – a kind of seafaring tank – out of the water while it investigates why two of the vehicles ran into trouble off Southern California's coast this week amid high surf, military officials said Wednesday, July 20.
No Marines or sailors were injured when one of the vehicles rolled onto its side Tuesday, July 19 in waves that were unusually high because of a storm in the southern hemisphere. The other one became disabled when waves as high as 8-feet (2.4 meters) slammed the coastline.
