121, Airdrop of Supplies and Equipment: Rigging Tractors and Tractor Dozers (6 September 2007), presents doctrine for rigging D5B tractor-dozers, John Deere 450G LT full-tracked commercial bulldozers, deployable universal combat earthmovers, T200 Bobcat compact track loaders, 420D and 410 backhoe loaders, small emplacement excavators, 277 multi-terrain loaders, and A/S 37U3 all-purpose remote transporters.
A significant savings in the airframes required for a light airfield repair package mission could be seen if the skid steers (after heavy-drop certification) replace the current dozer--the deployable universal combat earthmover (DEUCE)--and if the extremely heavy runway repair matting was simply deleted and replaced with additional cement and finishing tools.
