The rated lifting capacity of the MHU-7M Bomb Trailer is 13,500 pounds. A requirement exists to load multiple store munitions weighing more than 13,500 pounds with the MHU-7M. 13,500 pounds are loaded on the aircraft with the MHU-7M, then the remainder of the bombs are loaded, one at a time, by some other method. This test program was to determine if the MHU-7M could be up-graded to lift 18,000 pounds and therefore satisfy the existing requirement. Two types of tests were to be conducted a structural test and operational load cycling. Author
