A rose by any other name......... 

Latest version of Marine Corps’ amphibious fighting vehicles goes further, faster
The new vehicle, formerly known as the Advanced Assault Amphibious Vehicle, was recently renamed the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle.

In the 20th century, the Corps’ focus was on amphibious operations, but the 21st century focus is shifting to expeditionary operations, said Lt. Gen. Emil R. Bedard......

In other words, “a rose by any other name would still smell like burnt oil and diesel fuel,” according to Col. Clayton F. Nans, the direct reporting program manager at the technology center.

It's been advertised that these things cut through the waves so fast, you can ski behind them. Not bad, considering that what we have now will only do 8 mph through the water.
