Corps’ ‘monster machine’ reaches full-rate production - Marines use a Rough Terrain Container Handler to offload cargo that was transported by Sailors from USNS 1st Lt Baldomero Lopez to Green Beach on Marine Corps Support Facility Blount Island, Feb. 12, during Maritime Prepositioning Force Exercise 20. A Marine Corps Systems Command program of record, the RTCH moves 20-to-40-foot ISO containers on rough terrain, beaches and other surfaces to assist with land and amphibious missions. In September 2020, an upgraded version of the system reached full-rate production and is expected to field in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Rachel K.
