The Island
I suggested it in another thread about landing craft and decided it would be good to have a separate thread. Instead of the standard Higgins boat style landing craft, it would be much better to use LVTs that could land on the beach and continue inland functioning as an APC. There were a number of variants including those with tank turrets, which can be seen in the background of the following video. With earlier models, troops exited the vehicle by jumping over the side, but later models had a ramp at the rear of the vehicle.

Of course I had to go to The Pacific for this footage, but you can kind of see what I am going for:

Here's a video from a pretty crappy documentary, but it serves its purposes:

Neato, good vids, and I agree. And I disagree with taking off the MGs, as they will need some sort of support against infantry. Unless popping up from the transport to aim and fire at targets will be implemented.:p
