yall know that on tawara theres a lot of shallow water surrounding the island, this makes it impratical to take the LCT in, i tried the peer, and i took it in on the island and lowered the ramp, all was fine, start driving it off BOOM! so where do i take the LCT in to drop my tanks?

This is why you take a buffalo.

Has there always been a LCT on that map? I just thought the armour spawned on the island.

It spawns there but good luck getting it to land properly, if you dont beach it, the tanks will explode as you try and drive them off, otherwise you get blown to bits by planes/tanks and defguns. Oh yes.. and the wonderfull buffalo, even if you dont get hit directly you will start spinning around, being an even nicer target.

Well, if the correct version of this map is in 0.66, I made the way to the beach easier for the LCT if you go straight in from where it spawns. If you want to be realistic about the battle, not many tanks made it to the beaches. This was a major oversight by the Americans in the invasion in that the reefs proved to be impassable to an invasion force without tracked vehicles. Most of the tanks drowned-out because they simply weren't designed for the task.

There is a way to the beach with the tanks IF you deploy them. It's just a maze to get there with the reef and the enemy shooting at you. However, others have mentioned not being able to get the tanks off the LCT because they blow up. I personally haven't seen this problem first-hand. Does the same happen on Iwo Jima?

It seems to happen when you are unable to put the ramp down far enough.

You can the tanks ashore you drive the LCT in as far as you can a then you be careful where drive the tanks keep them out of the deep water, you can navigate though the shallows.
