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.

  • walkers again March 19, 2019

Comes with basic sensors, AI, cockpit, power, basic fuel and resources, and extra ammo. No manual weapon controller fitted Im probably […]

  • Jets act like there is something behind them March 3, 2019
    Hi. I made a boat that has jet engines on it. Two of them, that are placed near the front, tell me that there is something behind them, even though there is nothing.   Oil Runner.blueprint (Size: 108.31 KB / Downloads: 9)
  • saving parameters in 2.4.x mods? March 2, 2019
    In short, 2.4.x branch brought some big (and good) changes to the game.  As a result my mod (voidware) is belly-up again though.  I've parsed together most of it, but there's a couple of issues I haven't been able to fix.  The most urgent one is saving block settings (e.g. slider states and the like).  […]
  • Fragments/spalling seriously need a fix. March 2, 2019
    A big problem with these forms of damage, is that once a certain amount spawns, they despawn all other fragments/spalling which are on the way to hitting something. A pretty easy fix would be to make fragments get 'consumed' when they hit armour like a hollowpoint, instead of bouncing around, then removing the fragment cap, […]
