DA3: Big Bertha (CAT13 DSN Logistics Landing Craft)
MILPO-CAT13 Big Bertha - Duggonian Space Navy (Logistics Landing Craft)
About this creation


The logistics craft had to hold our previous build for Category 4 – the Armored Personnel Carrier, and that was pretty big… which made the boat big… then... I wanted a landing pad and that made it bigger… So yeah, she’s Big Bertha!

Hi all, this build is for the game Decisive Action 3, for one of the military categories, so if you appreciate the build feel free to toss me a like and raise my military power!

Here’s a beach landing:



And the captain (Reginald Spacefarer) and gunner (Pips Mcgoo).


The troops making their way onto enemy territory:




The comms and sensors array:


The AA guns:


An intrepid diver:


An off duty pilot hanging with the troops:


The cargo deck:


The landing scene – with PT boat escort!


The landing pad, and check out the DSN colors below!


Thanks for viewing!

----------
Here’s the specifications if you would like to see:


CATEGORY 13: LOGISTICS Landing Craft (MILPO)

Landing craft are small and medium seagoing vessels such as boats, and barges, used to convey a landing force (infantry and vehicles) from the sea to the shore during an amphibious assault.

If you don't have a Logistics Landing Craft approved and listed on your ORBAT, you may not conduct attacks across water of any kind.


Your Logistics Landing Craft must comply with the following 4 SPECs:

1. Your Logistics Landing Craft must include a crew of 2 (Operator and Gunner). It must include a wheel-house large enough to accommodate the Operator and you must have a photo to that shows the Operator minifig inside the wheel-house.

2. Your Logistics Landing Craft must be large enough to hold your Mechanized Infantry Squad APC (Category #4). You must include 2 photos in your posting: 1 that shows the APC inside the boat, and one that shows it on the lowered front ramp.

3. Your Logistics Landing Craft must include a bow (forward) ramp that must be displayed in both the up and down positions.

4. Your Logistics Landing Craft must include a number on the side (decal, brick built, etc).

Quoting W Navarre Wow, impressive work, the style and the detail is brilliant, hope this gets all the likes it deserves! I particularly love the black strip and the flex tube railing, plus you chose the colours of your countries very well!

Quoting Mark B. Wow! That's awesome. I love the mast and helipad - those are some great features. This sort of looks to me like what a landing craft would look like if the Coast Guard designed it.
Thank you Mark! Interesting point, I think the color scheme also feels more like a coast guard so that must be part of why it feels that way!
