Despite these preparations, very little went according to plan. Ten landing craft were swamped by the rough seas before they reached the beach and several others stayed afloat only because their passengers bailed water with their helmets. Seasickness was prevalent among the troops waiting offshore. On the 16th RCT front, the landing boats passed struggling men in life preservers and on rafts, survivors of the [[DD tank]]s which had sunk.<ref>{{cite web |url= http://www.army.mil/cmh/books/wwii/100-11/ch3.htm|title= Omaha Beachhead|accessdate=2007-06-10 |publisher= Historical Division, War Department |date= 20 September 1945|pages= 38–39}}</ref> Navigation of the assault craft was made difficult by the smoke and mist obscuring the landmarks they were to use in guiding themselves in, while a heavy current pushed them continually eastward.<ref>{{cite web |url= http://www.army.mil/cmh/books/wwii/100-11/ch3.htm|title= Omaha Beachhead|accessdate=2007-06-10 |publisher= Historical Division, War Department |date= 20 September 1945|page= 40}}</ref>

As the boats approached within a few hundred yards of the shore, they came under increasingly heavy fire from automatic weapons and artillery. The force discovered only then the ineffectiveness of the pre-landing bombardment. Delayed by the weather and attempting to avoid the landing craft as they ran in, the bombers had laid their ordnance too far inland, having no real effect on the coastal defenses.<ref>{{cite web |url= http://www.army.mil/cmh/books/wwii/100-11/ch3.htm|title= Omaha Beachhead|accessdate=2007-06-10 |publisher= Historical Division, War Department |date= 20 September 1945|page= 41}}</ref>

Because sea conditions were too rough, the decision was made for the 116th RCT to carry the DD tanks of the 743rd Tank Battalion all the way to the beach. Coming in opposite the heavily defended Vierville draw, Company B of the 743rd Tank Battalion lost all but one of its officers and half its DD tanks. However, the other two companies landed to the left of B/743 without initial loss. On the 16th RCT front, the two DD tanks that had survived the swim ashore were joined by three others that were landed directly onto the beach because of their LCT's damaged ramp. The remaining tank company managed to land 14 of its 16 tanks (although three of these were quickly knocked out).<ref>{{cite book |last= Badsey|first= Stephen| coauthors= Bean, Tim|title= Omaha Beach |year= 2004|publisher= Sutton Publishing Limited|isbn= 0-7509-3017-9|page= 61}}</ref><ref>{{cite web |url= http://www.army.mil/cmh/books/wwii/100-11/ch3.htm|title= Omaha Beachhead|accessdate=2007-06-10 |publisher= Historical Division, War Department |date= 20 September 1945|page= 42}}</ref>
