Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School (USADACS), Validation Engineering Division (SIOAC-DEV), was tasked by the Office of the Project Manager, Ammunition Logistics (PM-AMMOLOG) to develop and evaluate overcube ammunition loads for the Apache helicopter on the M977 Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMIT) and M-1075 Palletized Loading System (PLS) truck as part of the Modular Aviation Resupply/Rearm System (MARRS). The load tested consisted of a mixture of HELLFIRE, 2.75-inch rockets, and 30mm ammunition pallets stacked two high. A road hazard transportability test was conducted on the test load on each vehicle in order to assess the tiedown procedures. Results from the testing indicated that the tiedown procedures were adequate for the shipment of this Apache helicopter resupply load.
