The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center DAC, Validation Engineering Division SOSAC-DEV, was tasked by the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center ARDEC to conduct a First Article Test per MIL-STD-1660, Design Criteria for Ammunition Unit Loads on the 2.75-inch Hydra 70, PA150, Rocket Pallet produced by Delfasco of Tennessee, Greeneville, TN. Two of the three pallets submitted by Delfasco were evaluated using MIL-STD-1660 test requirements. No significant flaws were found in the two pallets during testing so the third pallet was not evaluated. As a result of the performance of the pallets during testing, the 2.75 inch, Hydra 70, PA150, Rocket Pallet produced by Delfasco is recommended for USA-wide use.
