  4. it's an awesome machine, it can carry 6000lb underslung load, not bad for a single engine, merlin has 3 engines and can undersling 10,000lb. I know it's 2 very different aircraft, just highlighted it to show it's a well designed machine, plus it would stop the dilema of taking troop carrying cabs off to do re-supply.
