The objective of this operational test was to evaluate the capability, suitability, and training requirements of the Alamo Sling-Shot System for aerial delivery from C-119 aircraft. It was determined that C-119 airdrop capability was greatly improved by use of the Alamo Sling-Shot System, due to a vast improvement in airdrop accuracy, reliability, ease of loading, rigging, versatility, and minimum aircrew training required to obtain proficiency. It is recommended that the Alamo Sling-Shot System be approved for operational use in airdropping A-22 containers and other similar loads for which rigging procedures have been established. Author
