The LCVP was a flat-bottomed boat made of plywood and powered by a gasoline engine. It had a distinctive bow ramp that could be lowered to allow troops and vehicles to disembark directly onto the beach. The landing craft had a capacity of about 36 fully equipped troops or one vehicle, such as a jeep or a small truck. The design of the Higgins landing craft emphasized simplicity, speed, and ease of production. Its shallow draft allowed it to approach close to shore, and its rugged construction enabled it to withstand rough sea conditions and beach landings. The LCVP proved to be highly effective in delivering troops and equipment quickly and efficiently during amphibious assaults.
