Short Takeoff, Shorter Landing
With a payload of 164,900 pounds, the C-17 can take off from a 7,000-foot airfield, fly 2,400 nautical miles, and land on a small, austere airfield of 3,000 feet or less.
The C-17 carries a cargo of wheeled U.S. Army vehicles in two side-by-side rows, including the U.S. Army's main battle tank, the M-1.
The C-17 is able to drop a single 60,000-pound (27,216-kilogram) payload, or sequential payloads that add up to 110,000 pounds (49,895 kilograms).
The C-17 fits more than 100 soldiers in its cargo hold, with space for 54 on the sidewalls and 48 in the centerline.
For more than a decade, Boeing’s C-17 support team has reduced support dollar per aircraft by 40% while maintaining a best-in-class mission capability rate of 85% or greater.
