Vehicle Description

Design

The LST is a large troop transport ship that is designed to deploy troops into battle from the shore, and can also act as a multi-role logistics support vessel.

Features
The LST is able to pickup or unload up to fifty one soldiers at a time from any location via the shore, an impressive feat that is unmatched by any other troop carrier in Cold War Assault.

It also features a landing pad in the rear of the ship that helicopters can land or hover near to automatically rearm their weapons.

Unlike the Mark II PBR, the LST has virtually unlimited endurance and is not constrained by a fuel limit either. Coupled with its extremely high resistance to enemy fire, it is far more viable as a seaborne troop carrier compared to all other amphibious-capable transports.

Crew Capacity
The LST only requires a driver to operate. It is able to transport up to fifty one passengers.

Protection

The LST has 10,000 points worth of armour plating.

Trivia

  • Due to the lack of proper engine-level support for vehicle and personnel movement on "ships", it's not recommended to attempt a landing on the LST via helicopter while the ship itself is in motion.
  • Despite being modelled onto the island's tower, the twin naval guns are purely cosmetic additions and cannot be operated.
  • Amusingly enough, the LST is almost nigh indestructible to conventional weapons, with multiple direct hits from the A-10's laser guided bombs or almost a hundred satchel charges required to sink it.
  • The LST remains as the sole movable ship in the entire series, and was also the largest surface vessel until the introduction of the USS Khe Sanh LHD in ArmA 2 (albeit only as a static and undrivable ship).
    • It is also the only "vehicle" that is capable of transporting more than fifty passengers. Even the largest VTOL aircraft in the series to date - the Infantry Transport variant of the V-44X Blackfish used by NATO forces in ArmA 3, is capable of carrying only thirty two passengers at a time.
