Thread: Searching for an "ammunition" ship

    Searching for an "ammunition" ship

    Can anyone recommend a ship that would pass for an ammunition ship? I have a pier in a new scenery that just "screams" for an ammunition ship (or anything that generally resembles one). Pier is part of a ammunition bunker complex. Obviously can't be an oiler or container ship. Ideas please!Bill

    Hi Bill,
    TBH does an ammo ship look any different from a normal cargo ship??

    Take a look at Page 17-18 of the CFS2 ships section in the Warbirds Library, plenty there and others if you plough through the whole section.

    The only idea that comes to mind is that ships in scenery (GSL) do not blow up or sink. They will react if placed in a layout but not in the scenery .gsl itself. The same goes for AA guns - they won't fire.

    Are you familiar with Sully's Liberty Ship?

    As for how you use whatever ship you decide on, Shadow Wolf's post is worth keeping in mind.

    all good answers. Any cargo ship could be used for an ammo carrier. The most common allied ship was the Liberty type.

    For yours, you could use the CFS2_Liberty_Ship here:

    If you want it to blow up like it was carrying ammo, use this .dp

    Remember you either have to place it with MB or in a GSL for it to be destroy-able..

    You might also give Sulley's a try.

    It includes some nice ammo barges that have their own unique dp files.
