Air Mobility Command (AMC) has been test-dropping pallets of cruise missiles from cargo planes like the C-17 and MC-130J.


  1. USAF is exploring the feasibility of air-dropping palletised effects from existing airlift platforms.
  2. The C-17 and MC-130J were chosen due to the lack of modifications needed for the initiative.
  3. The testing is part of a larger USAF initiative known as Rapid Dragon.
