A-22s: THE BIG GUNS OF PARACARGO
When heavy supplies are ordered, the A-22 can deliver. Fuel cans, water tanks and even ATV's are dropped from the jumpship, sliding out on roller tracks and drifting to earth under large canopies. Up to 1500 lbs. is supported by four parachutes ranging from 28 to 35 feet in diameter. So when firefighting equipment is needed fast and in bulk, why not PC?
