Maximum C-130E Tactical airlift capability : combat sample by S. H Miller( Book )

4 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis was made of C-130E tactical airlift capability for various types of intratheater aiflift operations. Using COMBAT SAMPLE data and assuming no resource or operational constraints, an analytic model is used to compute the maximum capability (in flying time per aircraft per day) of a squadron flying four different tactical airlift missions. For scheduled, or on-call, random request operations (considered the most 'typical'), the Air Force planner can expect no more than 5.6 flying hours per C-130E per day; for austere, preplanned operations, about 7.3; and for area support operations, about 6.3. A SAMSOM II stimulation model is used to determine how maximum airlift capability is affected by reducing direct maintenance manpower. Simulations show that 500 to 625 assigned maintenance men would allow maximum capability; 400 to 435, 90 to 98 percent; 225 to 255, 60 to 70 percent; and with 100 assigned maintenance men, a squadron of 16 aircraft could achieve only 10 to 25 percent of its maximum capability.

Fourteenth century England by J. S Hamilton( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a diverse range of documentary, literary and material evidence, the contributors to this volume examine several inter-related topics on political, social and cultural matters in late medieval England. Aspects of both arms production and armigerous society are explored, from the emergence of royal armourers in the early fourteenth century to the social implications of later armour and armorial bearings. Another major focus is the church and religion more broadly. The nature and significance of the ceremonial entry, the adventus, of bishops is explored, as well as the legal impact of provisions in shaping church-state relations in mid-century. Religious constructs of women are considered in a comparative analysis of orthodox and Lollard texts. Finally, a group of papers looks at aspects of politics at the centre, with an examination of the queenship of Isabella of France and the issue of the Mortimer inheritance in the early years of Richard II
