The vehicle assigned to the Assault Amphibian School was operating in the Del Mar Boat Basin north of Oceanside Harbor.
Marines in the program are participating in a 55-day course to learn how to maintain and operate the amphibious vehicles, which are 27-feet long and have a range of 20 nautical miles at sea and 300 miles on land.
The 32-ton vehicles can carry up to 21 marines during an assault launched from Navy amphibious ships at sea.
