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.

  • Modified Poster boards request March 23, 2017
    After seeing that the poster boards in Protech blocks (LCD Screen) I know they can be modified by modders. I thought it would be a cool idea to modify it so a poster board can accept multiple picture links and set a duration between each link so you can make something almost like a low […]
  • current alloy as a weaker counterpart to the buffed upcoming one. March 23, 2017
    I like to use alloy for buoyancy and 4 resource seems to be a fair price in my opinion. I get that the new one at 5 resource is way better but the current one is still very good if you know how to compensate. Also get that some like alloy as a low weight […]
