An amphibious U.S. Navy patrol air cushion vehicle (PACV) easily transitions from water to land as it returns to its Cat Lo Base after a mission in the Mekong Delta region of South Vietnam. Three PACV's have been operating in South Vietnam since May 1966. They make up patrol air cushion vehicle (PACV) division 107, part of boat squadron 1, military assistance command (Vietnam). The PACV's are being evaluated for coastal surveillance, intercept and investigation to help prevent seaborne infiltration and supply of Viet Cong units in South Vietnam.
