AAV7 44 mph land ..what's the ACV land speed?

so is it worth it? sure, to land/transport heavy loads much faster whereas the AAVs are mainly troop carriers

...is the armor even worth it if the skirt is vulnerable? considering you are using a secured beach?
...also, the fans are highly vulnerable to small arms?..also highly visible, and ''fragile''--more so than a chopper's rotors
thanks all replies
