Request CH-47 mission flight profile to determine level of sectionalization required to fulfill mission requirements.
Refer to Table 1, CH-47 External Load Capabilities for 30 Nautical Mile Radius Mission, below.
Table 1. CH-47 External Load Capabilities for 30 Nautical Mile Radius Mission.*
Sea Level/59F (Sea Level/15C)
2000 ft/70F (610 m/21C)
4000 ft/95F (1220 m/35C)
*Reference: MIL-STD-1366D, Table 32.

After sectionalization, weight of scraper is sufficient so that no further disassembly of scraper is
required. Weight of tractor must, however, be reduced; disassembly to remove selected components
from tractor is required.
