US Higgins LCVP

This is the same as the Diahatsu with the exception of Beach Landing being reduced to 2 since the Higgins was smaller. I can't see reducing the cost to 1 point, so the US has to take one for the team this time.

Thodafett figured we could use the Diahatsu piece because they are very similar (at this scale), so we needed a card. I figured perhaps others out there would like a card for their scenarios as well, so here you go.

I made the image large because when you click on it, it says the file is private. It is not private, but I can't get the computer to believe me, so if you want it, you'll just have to right click & save as. Sorry.

I had no problem with the private thing, just slide copied onto my IMac's desktop.  Nice card, however Higgins boats made very few water passages, they were usually carried by APA's to the landing site and then loaded with troops and supplies for the actual assault on the beach.  Diahatsu were actually used for inter-island transport.  The US LCI & LSM were used more like the Diahatsu.

Yeah, but the ships with the LCVPs aboard would not approach within more than 12 or so miles of the beach, which in game turns could be as much as 3 sectors, and so I kept their speed rating.
