M.Corp LC-3 is a class of twenty 50m fast landing craft for storming beaches. They are employed either as a part of a short-range landing force or from a larger ship.

Design:

Hull of LC-3 is shallow and flat-bottomed, allowing it to come close to shore. It uses its two-piece bow loading ramp to unload troops onto an unprepared beach. It can also load various containers including SAM systems, anti-ship missile systems, and mine laying devices, making it a versatile fast platform. In a need, the cargo space can be covered and ship can be used as a floating hospital or accomodation for refugees. Its carrying capacity is around 155t of cargo, while the ramp can hold around 60t at once.

Propulsion is provided by two gas turbines generating 10000hp (7 457KW), each driving a ducted reversible propeller. SInce the propellers are far apart, differential power can be used to turn the ship almost in place. Also, rudders are close enough to propeller ducts that they are effectively vectoring the thrust of the propellers, giving the ship great maneuverability.

Armament of LC-3 consists of two 20mm remotely operated gun turrets (RCWS) intended to assist in covering fire during assault landings, but also to help the ship in its other tasks. They both have a wide angle of fire, and their angles of fire overlap greatly in front and behind the ship, allowing for very good saturation of fire. Ship can also mount crew operated weapons, including automatic grenade launchers and heavy machine guns. Air defence is provided man portable air defence systems (MANPADS). LC-3 can additionally be supplied with non-lethal weapons including dazzlers and sonic cannons mounted inside the cargo hold. This, combined with ships great speed, makes LC-3s effective in counter-smuggling and counter-piracy operations.

    @ND40X if you're using a hinge for elevators, you need a second hinge for trim.

    @ND40X trim is one of standard inputs, you just press the button until trim input is selected.

    @Sbevensplanes the issue originates from misuse, as I've already stated. You should stop close to the shore and lower the ramp onto the shore, not beach the ship.

    But overall I would rate this a 9/10 because of that one issue

    @CrappyNames the APC carried by this boat already exists as a standalone build. People can download it and spawn as many as they want. I don't see a reason to post it again.

    @8bitgamer33 you should slow down and only let the ramp rest on the beech. Then adjust the ramp height to keep the ship fairly level, and keep some throttle so ship won't drift off. Don't beech the ship.

    Nice, but when I moved it over to a beach and tried to land, it just went too far onto the beach. The ramp stuck out in front and I couldn't do anything.
