It could only really act as a starting uncappable base. Other than that it has no real purpose and it would use a lot of polys
Yeah, it would pretty much just be eye candy. Perhaps it could be used to repair vehicles that drive into its cargo hold.
Here's an idea. Do any of you guys know about BF Empires? It's a command and conquer style mod. It has factories that can spawn tanks and anything else you can think of, drawing from a central pool of points shared by the team. Now get this: what if the LST could be like that? You could choose anything from a list of goodies, like vehicles and special kits. The point system could be linked to the ticket system perhaps. I cant figure out if it could work, but I think it's worth suggesting.
Empires was a completely original BF mod and FH would never and could never use the Empire's system.
