Conversion of Light-Weight Commercial Aircraft to Fulfill a Specific Military Mission 690313

The concept of converting in-production lightweight commercial aircraft to fulfill a specific military role presents significant engineering opportunities. The conversion of the Cessna Super Skymaster, featuring a tandem engine installation, to the role of a forward air control aircraft is an example of such a program. The exact nature of the conversion consists of modifying the basic commercial configuration to the mandatory requirements of the user. Visibility, electrical and electronic systems, and external stores capability are areas requiring special design attention.
