Landing Craft, Air Cushion
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.
Direction to Spawn: Any way as it is unarmed
