Armored Troop Carrier (H) (VUSBX14) Spotlight

 

ATC(H) (VUSBX14)Includes one Armored Troop Carrier boat, with options for the ATC(H) and ATC(H) Aid Boat.

The ATC boats converted from LCM-6 landing craft developed in the 1950s for ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore use. The converted LCM designs added 0.25 inch armor plating in many areas to protect the superstructure from critical damage caused by rockets.

The upgraded armored ATC made up about half of the river craft deployed by the United States during the Vietnam War, in effect making the ATC the “workhorse” of the river war. Some ATCs had helicopter decks added and became ATC(H).
