Landing Craft, Air Cushion

Landing Craft, Air Cushion

By Jawley

Although a bit conventional, this build is a 1.5:1 scale model of the actual Landing Craft, Air Cushion developed in the United States and in service with the United States Navy. The Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) is a class of air-cushion vehicle (hovercraft) used as landing craft by the United States Navy’s Assault Craft Units and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF). They transport weapons systems, equipment, cargo and personnel of the assault elements of the Marine Air/Ground Task Force both from ship to shore and across the beach.

The main function of this build is to transport the M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tank from sea to land in an amphibious landing, much like in real life. As the area of deployment of the Abrams ranges widely from the shore to far inland there are no ACBs to automatically deploy the tank. Thus the pilot must himself activate spin blocks to lower the loading ramp and the Abrams must be driven off the ramp itself.

  • Particle Cannons and Customisation April 24, 2017
    I'm writing this as a result of some of my more inventive ideas and testing results, and one could almost consider it as a pseudo-complaint about the current state of particle weaponry and how they function - and how currently (though of course all in all it may be just me) they are really niche […]

  • Planet Intersea Trailer! April 23, 2017
    Intersea is a campaign i've been developing for months now. It has one of the most massive selections of vehicles ever created for FtD combined with a campaign and missions for each of the 17 factions in the game. I essentially wanted to see how much depth I could fit into the constraints of the […]
  • Looking for Playtesters April 23, 2017
    A Trailer for the Planet of Intersea I've been developing for months. I think it may even be the biggest (in terms of number of vehicles and factions) planet so far developed for FtD. It strictly uses technologies in use in the real world from 1960 to 1980 with a few small liberties to add […]
  • Prefabs for easy adventure mode start? April 23, 2017
    If you can place prefabs in adventure, then why doesn't everyone have a prefab for a small ship and use that for the adventure mode start so that it won't really matter if you get a hard enemy at the start? If this wont work what is the fastest/easiest way to start adventure?
  • [SD] [70/80 FP Godly Heavy] Event Horizon April 23, 2017
    I have never attempted a ship in my style this big, so it is not up to the standards that I hold my personal thrustercraft up to (also I want to show Neter players some mercy). Regardless, it is still quite an impressive feat of raw firepower. I give you, the Event Horizon (name pending) […]
  • Recoilless rifle part. April 23, 2017
    A part that when attached to a Cannon and facing the opposite way as the firing piece, uses half the propellent of the gun to make recoil zero, thus making the projectile 50% slower. I can think of some uses for such a part for both crams and acc. For example, being able to mount […]
