Amphibious vehicles are slowly being supplanted by air cushion vehicles, such as hovercraft, in many modern militaries. At first I thought supplanted but a mispelling of supplemented but checked and there is a word supplanted which means chiefly of things: To take the place of, succeed to the position of, supersede.. I still wonder whether supplemented would be more appropriate as that would mean that hovercraft were used in addition to wheeled amphibious vehicles rather than replacing them completely? Perhaps just being too pedantic. --jmb 09:05, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
This article is written as if it originally covered military vehicles, and civilian coverage was added in, or vice versa - it's hard to tell which without checking the history first. Alos, there are so many major sections that it makes browsing the article a bit cumbersome. Splitting it into military and civilian article is one way to help this, but not the only way.

Sorry to drop in the (dubiously written) amphibious tank material into your very well written article, but I am desperately trying to clean up tank and I think this is the correct home for it. Please edit and shred as necessary / desired. Dhatfield (talk) 09:48, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
The reference to RodeDawg implies they are still around but the two links are no longer valid. Not sure how it played into their demise, but they were hit by a stock market pump-and-dump that caused trading to be suspended. The history and demise of RodeDawg International Industries, Inc. (RWGI) would make an interesting page of its own, including the endorsement (in exchange for stock) by rapper "Ice T" (http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Rodedawg-International-Industries-Inc-681042.html), the temporary suspension of trading due to the pump-and-dump (http://www.sophos.com/pressoffice/news/articles/2007/03/sec.html), the SEC charging CEO (Luis E. Pallais) and company with issuing false press releases (http://www.404.gov/litigation/litreleases/2008/lr20762.htm), and Mr. Pallais personal bankruptcy filing.
There should be a section for Screw-propelled vehicle. Some of them are amphibious(like the Ice Challenger) and some of them have "real" uses. (just saw one on blocket.se that have been used for lake liming)--18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:23, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Caption edited to replace 'oil drums used as floats' with 'inflatable floats' since they are dedicated flotation bags, not oil drums. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:52, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
