The LCVP is a landing craft used by Royal Marines Assault Squadrons, such as 539 Assault Squadron, and the Royal Logistics Corps. The craft's primary role is putting ashore men and equipment. The Royal Marines also use the LCVP as a patrol boat. Up to 35 fully-laden Royal Marines and their equipment such as Land Rovers can be carried and embarked by the Mk5 LCVP. The landing craft are usually stored on davits on amphibious assault vessels such as HMS Ocean, HMS Albion and HMS Bulwark.

LCVPs feature aluminium hulls and are powered by twin waterjets. Their design includes a rigid and enclosed windowed canopy. LCVPs have a ramp at the bow that lowers for rapid unloading. GPMGs can be mounted when needed.

LCVPs Mk5s are operated by a crew of 3.
