X-55 Advanced Composite Cargo Aircraft (ACCA)

Notional mission profiles were provided as general guidance for top-level physical scaling. They were only intended to convey the scope of the desired range of performance and expedite the configuration synthesis process. Initial trade space targets for cargo bay volume and flooring strength would be biased toward standard 463L pallets and light, wheeled vehicle cargo in a roll-on / roll-off configuration. Initial targets for cargo bay accommodations: 3 x 463L pallets or 20 combat-equipped troops or 1 up-armored HMMWV. Width would accommodate a 14 inch walkway in addition to load.
