Landing Barge Vehicle (LBV)

A commercial barge converted to transport vehicles during the early stages of the landings. There were three types of LBV (small, medium and large), measuring between 70 and 82 feet long (approximately 21 to 25 m). Depending on their size, LBVs carried loads of up to 100 to 200 tonnes, including up to three trucks, for the largest model, as well as guns.
