Abstract : The CH-47F Improved Cargo Helicopter (CH-47F) supports the Army's requirement to be strategically responsive across the full spectrum of operations. It will provide continued support, coverage, and sustainment of Maneuver, Fire Support, Air Defense, and Survivability mission areas. Its mission is transportation of ground forces, Class III/Class V supplies, and other battle critical cargo in support of all future contingencies. The CH-47F enables the Army to support the rapid response capability necessary for forcible and early entry contingency missions, as well as tactical and operational nonlinear, noncontiguous, simultaneous, or sequential operations, which will be characteristic of future operations
