Design of Medium Military Transport Aircraft 1999-01-5530

Different feasibility studies have been carried out over several years at the Royal Military College of Science (RMCS) into medium military airlifters aimed, in essence at replacing the C-130. The studies, each occupying a nominal 1,500 manhours (but probably 50% more) formed part of the final year of the AeroMechanical B.Eng degree at RMCS. The intention of this paper is to draw together their major findings and deals predominantly with the topics of: cargo hold sizing and body aerodynamics, powerplant selection, weight and performance.
