The DoDís C-5 Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster III aircraft play key roles in transporting weapons and other cargo. Since Sept. 2001, these aircraft have delivered over 2.4 million tons of cargo to staging and operating bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet determining the number and mix to meet current and future airlift requirements has become increasingly challenging given distinct differences between the two aircraft. While the C-5 can carry more cargo, the newer C-17 can deliver to forward-deployed bases and has a higher mission capable rate. This report identifies the impact C-5 modernization cost increases have had on the mix of aircraft; assesses the current C-5 modernization cost estimate; and identifies C-17 production plans and issues.
