The LCM (Landing Craft Mechanized) saw more than 8,500 copies built in American yards between 1942 and 1945. LCMs could be either carried on ship davits or towed. Due to the danger of swamping in rough seas, most LCMs were towed empty and not loaded with troops until an assult. LCMs could be readily identified by their unique perforated bow ramp. As tanks grew larger and heavier, the LCM3 was developed with a longer hull and greater buoyancy, which allowed a 30 ton tank to be carried. The LCM had a crew of 4 men and was armed with two 50-caliber machine guns. This unit remained dependent upon a parent ship over long periods of time. As well as taking part in the D-Day landings, LCM were also used in large numbers in the Pacific Island campaigns and the crossing of the Rhine in Germany.
