*** As has been talked about with the Mi24 "Hind", and it's limitations with carrying troops while laden with ordinance: Getting rid of ammunition to make room to load infantry into your pseudo IFV when under fire is a self-solving problem.

** Another example is the [[SpiderTank AT-TE]] from Episode II and the Clone Wars TV series. Although not specifically referred to as a transport, it is one, and also mounts enough fire to be a respectable threat in their own right.

* During WorldWarII, the US fielded a simple vehicle known as the Landing Vehicle Tracked (LVT). In essence, this was a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin landing craft with tracks]] on it, capable of hitting the beach and rolling inland from there. It was originally intended to haul cargo ashore without forcing troops to drag heavy crates up the beach, but it didn't take long for it to be equipped with ever increasing amounts of armor protection and firepower. The Marines loved it, but lacking much in the way of mechanics, they were unable to maintain them. Typiaclly a Marine unit would roll ashore with a complement of LVTs, using them to provide mobile cover and fire support until they would break down and be abandoned where they stopped, and hope to get a replacement later.

* The [[SemperFi U.S Marines]] are upgrading their own AwesomePersonnelCarrier soon, with the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle ([=EFV=]) due to enter full service in 2015. Not only can it carry seventeen Marines, but also packs a [[MoreDakka 30mm autocannon]], more powerful than the Bradley's 25mm gun, and has a whopping 2700 hp engine and amphibious capability, making it one of the most mobile armored fighting vehicles around. Compare this kind of power to most tanks, which have ~1500 hp, and other [=APC=]s, which have 1000 hp or less. Of course, it only uses its full power when traveling on water, and uses only 850 hp on land. It also essentially transforms into a boat mode, sealing up various panels and extending the front into a prow.

Unfortunately, the program has since been cancelled due to the budget costing a projected 15 billion American dollars.

** It looks suspiciously like a repainted M8 Greyhound, a WW2-vintage armoured car used in the reconnaissance role. It had a small calibre cannon and a crew of four, but no troop transport capacity.

* Subverted in ''Film/DieHard''. After the initial assault on the front doors fails, SWAT sends in "the car", an APC that immediately gets stuck on the railings of the front steps, then hit by an RPG. Then by another one. So much for full frontal assault on a fortified position.
