The BARC (barge, amphibious, resupply, cargo), later designated as the LARC LX (Lighter, Amphibious, Resupply, Cargo), could carry 60 tons of cargo, and was used to transport wheeled and tracked vehicles, including beach preparation equipment and general cargo from ship to shore or to inland transfer points. It was the only amphibian in the Army inventory capable of landing on a beach through breaking surf. The BARC was deck-loaded on a commercial vessel of heavy lift ship for transport overseas. The BARC had the ability to operate on lowstrength soils at a gross weight of 319,000 pounds (120,000-pound pay-load). It was capable of lightering 40-foot containers, which can be discharged from the LARC by crane, narrow straddle carriers, or rollers similar to those used in unloading cargo aircraft.
