    The also outfitted a C-130 with MORE JATO`s. including some pointing forward. Designed to stop the craft on a soccar field during a rescue mission.

    Unfortnatly, during testing the forward ones were fired prematurely, driving the craft into the ground, killing the pilots.

    I spent a time servicing these things. You should see them drop a tank and take off again.
