The US Air Force is always thinking of new strategies to utilise its planes to make life more difficult for enemies.
Modifying cargo aircraft to drop bombs is one endeavour carried out by the Air Force Special Operations Command.
The director of AFSOC claimed that other air forces could readily use their cargo aircraft to launch those missiles.
To get ready for a fight with a strong adversary, the US Air Force is creating new methods to employ its planes.
Repurposing its larger aircraft, like as cargo planes and tankers, for other tasks has been a significant component of that endeavour.
Together with other airmen and experts, US Air Force Special Operations Command has been developing ways to allow its MC-130J workhorse transport jet to drop pallets of long-range cruise missiles.
