A key event of the Second World War:
On June 6, 1944, Allied troops landed in Normandy. This day went down in history as D-Day.
The aim was to drive the German occupiers back from northern France. After the successful landing of the the Allies, the second front against Hitler‘s Germany demanded by Stalin was created
and the downfall of the National Socialists was effectively sealed. By the time of the Omaha Beach landings, the concept of invasion by landing craft had been widely tested.
The most common type of medium landing craft was the LCM, which was also present in the
German Army in the Army and Navy. The LCM 3 had a load capacity of up to 54t and could carry a larger vehicle such as a Sherman M4 main battle tank.
It could also transport 60 soldiers and 27,000 kg of cargo in the open cargo hold. Therefore, only a maximum speed of 8 knots was possible when loaded. For loading and unloading, the LCM 3 has a bow ramp.
