Post subject: FAF LCAC offloads functional M1 Tank after landing (25 pics) Reply with quote
This is a photo essay of FA Futures new fully functional LCAC coming ashore carrying a fully functional M1 Abrams Tank and then offloading it, allowing the M1 to advance, as the LCAC then turns around and goes back to the WASP to reload another one...

As far as I know, this is the 1st time this has been accomplished in FA.

Just another success for FA Futures Dev Team! Mr. Green

Well done once again, CAG, and if I'm right no one other sim has it indeed.

I would be curious to learn which class of carrier ship you have planned can delivery them...

Well, IIRC only the US Navy has the LCAC, so only Wasp type carriers will be delivering them...

Out of curiosity, could the M1 tank be driven? (by us game players)

That could open other possibilities; like FICON from a B-36. And by
extrapolation, piloting an X-15 droped from a B-52. Or maybe a
playable functional parachutist, or parachuted commando "dune-buggy"
from a C-130?

It could be, but this solution will not apply to flying objects. The LCAC is a ground vehicle.

You cant have flyable items supporting other items in the air. It doesnt work that way...

If it did we could have flying aircraft carriers, but we cant...


CAG out...
