Driving an Abrams onto the deck of the USAV Five Forks

The crew of the USAV Five Forks (LCU 2018) help Spc. Robert Agwayo, a tank driver with the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, guide an M1A2 Abrams main battle tank up the ramp and onto the deck of the vessel at Kuwait Naval Base, Oct. 23. “It’s the first time any of us have ever done it,” explained 1st Lt. Jacob Glover, a native of Akron, Ohio and the tank platoon leader. “The opening of the boat leaves only a couple of feet on each side for the tank, but I have such experienced drivers and crew that they were able to get it in with no problems.” (U.S. Army Photo by Staff Sgt. Peter J. Berardi, 316th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary))
