Abstract : The paper discusses the demonstrated stresses and adaptation problems during large scale, long range, rapid reaction time, aerial troop deployments. Long range aerial troop transport and deployment is a technological achievement of the 1960's that has influenced and shaped international political thinking and military strategy. Super transport aircraft, capable of around-the-world troop lifts, are important in the military inventory. Careful consideration has been given to the air-crews that operate these aircraft. It is necessary to carefully assess the position, role, and regard for the individual soldier, the passenger, whom all this aviation technology and engineering supports. (Author)
