There were a bunch of US Army Mine Planters that we stuck in BigBabes, including Gen. Frank (ship 9468). It's one of the USAMP Bell class ACMs (class 816). They were all kinda much great big tuna boats (705 game tons, 3600 endurance, 180 fuel). They were collectively abstracted, but can't imagine any one of them being very far out of standard. And nobody was gonna change bunkerage just to let them haul some troops.
Don sparked these into existence, so I'm totally on board with his thoughts.
IIRC, ACM won't fit into any kind of transport TF, so perhaps a good solution (the one MacArthur used) might be to copy class 816 into slot 815, as an xAPc, and do a bind convert between the two with a 2 - 3 day delay? This way, you can have either muffins or cookies.
Thanks for your input John. Since I don't play much (senior confusion is the culprit) the thing that gets me off (so to speak) is tinkering with the OOB for the ships, classes and bases.
Thanks again to you and Don
