Strong surf is being blamed for a Marine Assault Amphibian Vehicle sinking off the Bellows Training area.
The AAV, similar to this one sunk just after 6:30 Monday night.
Military officials say no one was hurt, and that a large wave caused the vehicle to hit the reef.
The AAV then started to take on water before it lost power. It sank about 200 yards off shore.
The coast guard is helping with the recovery operation to pull the vehicle out of the water.
