About this title:
Often affectionately referred to as the “Tuna Boat”, the AAV7A1 is an amphibious vehicle that is equally at home on land as it is in swimming through the surf on a beach. However, in its “natural” state, the all-welded aluminum hull of the AAV7A1 is vulnerable to small arms and RPG fire, as well as artillery or mine blasts. For this reason the EAAK (Enhanced Appliqué Armor Kit) was designed and fitted to vehicles operated by the USMC. The EAAK has a distinctive shape with its corrugated profile, and for the first time, it has also been fitted to a 1/72 kit.
