Abstract : This report documents the results and methodology used to quantify the sortie generation capability and maintenance manpower requirements for a hypothetical, state-of-the-art gunship. The logistics Composite (LCOM) model was used to perform this analysis. Analysis showed that a relatively large increase in equipment reliability resulted in a relatively small decrease in maintenance manpower requirements. The conclusion is that equipment reliability improvements alone will not produce significant reductions in maintenance manpower requirements. This must come from the synergistic effect of reliability improvements in conjunction with improvements in other supportability factors such as the maintenance concept, specialty consolidation, aircraft basing mode, and other ilities. Keywords: AC-130H aircraft.
