Abstract : The requirement to assess the air portabilty of the test item grew out of the concept of the Operational Deployment Force (ODF), and the need for a large number of current inservice vehicles to be trialed for air movement. This report presents the assessment of the air portability status of the test item for carriage by C-130 aircraft, and a loading and lashing diagram for the air transportation of the test item.
