Military hovercraft


Introduction 

Except for the many fun uses of hovercraft on a personal level, the professional use of hovercraft include Search and Rescue, Mass Transportation, Recreational, Research and Military uses. 

Military and Rescue hovercraft are exceptionally suited to various tasks as they are not dependent on road conditions and can quickly move across the various terrains in pursuit of their goal. 

Most military hovercraft however are amphibious air cushion vehicles, used for landing troops and equipment, rather than transport over land or water.

Many armed forces around the world now have military hovercraft in their arsenal.
