Air Force Special Operations Command is looking for a replacment for the MC-130 to complement the V-22 in the years beyond 2010 with a project called the MC-X. A pontential special operations stealth airlifter, the MC-X, was the subject of a McDonnel Douglas study undertaken by the USAF completed in 1997. The primary focus of the study is infared IR and radar cross section, and powerplant and propulsion systems for airlifters.


A new study of potential replacements of the C-130 transports, tankers and gunships is scheduled to begin in 2002. Characteristics for the new MC-X aircraft, which would be smaller C-130, include three pallet postions, stealth, high subsonic speeds, improved maneuverability, short or vertical takeoff and landing, and the ability to fly long range missions.

I think the new Special operations aircraft combined will highly increase our potential to infiltrate and extract our special forces behind enemy lines.
