Response to Jimvanhise (Reply #2)

14. There is a main drop hatch in the rear,

two circular hatches for the crew and two long doors on the top of the troop bay.

It is however a combat vehicle, not a pleasure boat. Everything is armored and will be difficult to open with water pouring in- just like a car door is nearly impossible to open if one sinks. Also the Marines will be in full combat gear which will hinder using the smaller hatches.

It is a very good design, much better than the landing craft of WW2 that dropped the front ramps into enemy fire. Unfortunately when something goes catastrophically wrong, there will be 15-20 lives at risk.
