AIR TRANSPORTABILITY GUIDANCE
Section I. GENERAL
This chapter provides air transportability guidance for
the movement of the TEAMPACK system. It also
presents tiedown diagrams and tiedown data for loading
this system into C-130, C-141, and C-5 Air Force
Maximum Utilization of Aircraft
Additional cargo and/or personnel, within allowable load
limits and restrictions as prescribed by pertinent safety
regulations, can be transported with the TEAMPACK in
US Air Force aircraft.
In addition to the safety precautions contained in
chapter 3, the following procedures apply:
The activity offering the vehicle of systems for
air transport will notify the aircraft commander or his
representative when ammunition or explosives are to be
transported within a system.
In accordance with TM 38-250/AFR 71-4, the
fuel level may be three-quarters full when loaded on the
cargo floor, or no more than one-quarter full during
The vehicles and shelter must be restrained for
air transport in accordance with applicable procedures in
Air Force Technical Order (TO) IC-XXX 9.
Fire extinguishers must be readily
available during all loading and
Proper ventilation must be provided
monoxide fumes may be fatal.
Do not allow vehicles to exceed 3
miles per hour (walking speed) on
the loading ramps or inside the
The CUCV cannot be externally lifted
The CUCV with shelter must be
loaded aboard the C-130 and C-141
aircraft forward end first. Do not
attempt to load by backing aboard
The loadmaster will ensure that the loaded equipment is
secured in accordance with restraint criteria outlined in
Section II. TRANSPORT BY US AIR FORCE AIRCRAFT
AN/MSQ-103A/C TEAMPACK System. The
AN/MSQ-103A and -103C TEAMPACK systems are
transportable in the C-130, C-141, and C-5 aircraft. The
procedures below will be used for loading the
TEAMPACK system on the following aircraft.
C130 and C-141 Aircraft. The shelter
must be removed from the M1015 tracked carrier prior
to loading. When the M1015 carrier is loaded, metal
parts of the carrier tracks must not make contact with
the aircraft loading ramp or cargo compartment floor.
The use of shoring is always required when loading and
unloading the carrier. Two-by-twelve-inch lumber must
be used to provide two rows of shoring 24 inches wide
and spaced to match the carrier tracks. Loaded height
of carrier may be reduced slightly by use of 3/4or 1/2-
inch plywood shoring instead of 2x 12-inch lumber.
Shoring must be laid from the ground end of the aircraft
ramp extension into the cargo compartment so that,
when the carrier is in the tiedown position, the tracks are
on the shoring Shoring is provided by the transporting
unit or activity. The antenna must be removed from the
shelter to meet the 102and 103-inch clearance
respectively. The shelter must be placed on two
interlocked 463L Air Force pallets for shipment.
C5 Aircraft. The TEAMPACK system can
be transported in the operational configuration. The
requirement for shoring is the same as for the C-130
and C-141 aircraft.
