Traditional amphibious maneuver from the sea is a three-step process: maneuver in ships, transition to the shore, and maneuver ashore.
Figures were calculated for three cases in each mix: using all available aircraft for troop movement and sustainment; holding two aircraft in reserve for tactical recovery or medical evacuation; and both flying deception missions and holding two aircraft in reserve.
To measure the impact of a non-permissive environment and of aircraft attrition, we model the aircraft as circulating between the supported unit and the ARG, subject to attack on both the inbound and outbound legs.

A combination of naval initiatives in advanced mobility, fires, and sustainment capabilities, leveraging substantially enhanced information connectivity, will enable future Marine forces to be employed in a dramatically different manner, making them an even more effective tool of national power.
Amphibious forces must be capable of performing missions ranging from humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to major theater war (MTW).
The MEU (SOC) deploys onboard amphibious warships - three-ship amphibious ready groups - which carry the helicopters and amphibious assault vehicles that transport Marine combat and support elements ashore, as well as the vertical/short take-off and landing (V/STOL) aircraft - both fixed- and rotary-wing - that provide integrated air support.

 Naval Expeditionary Logistics - Chapter 3
If the Marine Corps were to rely only on the fleet of amphibious ships to deploy its forces from CONUS, arrival in-theater would be slow, taking 30 days or more, because of the time required to move to embarkation ports, embark the troops, their equipment, and ammunition, and move to the theater of operations.
Today, except for the amphibious-ready groups that are forward deployed, deployment of amphibious task forces from CONUS is slow because before deploying the ships must move from their home ports and then embark the Marines, their equipment, and ammunition.
Amphibious ships used in this manner would not, of course, be available for deployment of additional Marine Corps units.

In the future, when equipped with advanced amphibious assault vehicles, air-cushioned landing craft, and tilt-rotor aircraft, it will be capable of projecting combat power from the sea -- 25 to 75 miles over the horizon -- directly against the decisive objectives for inland.
