C-5 CONFIGURATIONS

Because of the unique design of the C-5 aircraft, there are only three configurations to be concerned with. The troop seating is in the upstairs troop compartment which always provides 73 available seats. The standard configurations are as follows:

  • CP-1. This configuration offers 36 pallet positions and seats for 73 passengers in the troop compartment. All rollers will be up in this configuration.
  • CP- 2. This configuration offers a clean cargo compartment floor for floor-loaded cargo and seats for 73 passengers in the troop compartment. All rollers will be down in this configuration.
  • CP-3. This configuration offers a mixed combination of palletized cargo and floor-loaded cargo in the cargo compartment and seats for 73 passengers in the troop compartment. Rollers will be positioned as the cargo dictates.

KC-10 CONFIGURATIONS

AMC currently offers two configurations for troop-cargo movement (Figures A-1 and A-2). Other configurations are available; however, they must be specifically coordinated for with AMC headquarters and affiliated ALCS. Refer to T.O. 1C-10(K)A-9.
