    Introduction


    This analysis defines the market for military transports
    to include aircraft that perform one or more military air
    transportation missions such as personnel transport,
    long-range strategic airlift, and short-range tactical
    transport, as well as short-haul utility runs. With the
    exception of a few models included in the light/utility
    transport segment, this analysis covers only aircraft that
    are designed to serve as military transports and have
    excluded aircraft designed for the civilian market such
    as commercial airliners, regional jets, or business jets,
    all of which typically are only lightly modified when
    entering military service.
    For example, Boeing's C-17 Globemaster III was
    developed from McDonnell Douglas' high-winged Y-15
    entrant in the U.S. Air Force's 1970s-era Advanced
    Medium STOL Transport (AMST) competition and has
    no civilian analogue. It is a true military transport. But
    there are other aircraft used to transport military freight
    and passengers that are not true military aircraft. The
    Boeing C-40 Clipper, for example, is based on the
    Boeing 737-700. It is produced on the same production
    line as other 737s by Boeing Commercial Airplanes in
    Renton, Washington. The aircraft is modified slightly
    before entering military service, but completion of the
    C-40 at the company's Integrated Defense Systems
    facility in Wichita, Kansas, primarily involves
    installation of an FAA-certificated kit to provide a
    "combi" configuration capable of rapidly switching
    between passenger service and cargo hauling. The C-40
    is little more than a civilian airliner in U.S. military
    livery, and for that reason we exclude it from our
    analysis of the market for military transports. Likewise,
    we have excluded any transports reconfigured for
    various special-purpose military missions that do not
    involve moving troops or cargo, and aerial refueling
    aircraft converted from civil airliners that also have a
    supplementary cargo-carrying capability.
    The aircraft covered in this analysis have been divided
    into three classes based solely on gross takeoff weight
    (GTOW). Heavy transports include any aircraft above
    80,000 pounds GTOW used primarily for military
    transport purposes. Medium transports encompass the
    same basic mission description as the heavy transports
    but operate in a range between 20,000 and 80,000
    pounds GTOW. Light transports are defined as those
    aircraft weighing less than 20,000 pounds GTOW.
    Military transport aircraft tend to be built to fill
    demanding performance requirements that converted
    civilian airliners cannot meet. Unlike airliners, they are
    also specially designed to be operated in combat zones
    in which ground fire and surface-to-air missiles
    represent a threat. However, the design differences
    between military transport aircraft and their civilian
    counterparts are less significant for light transports than
    for aircraft on the heavier side. We have therefore
    included military production of several primarily
    civilian models in the light transport class in this
    analysis.
    This analysis covers market trends and the competitive
    environment in the decade ahead based on a review of
    the market for the following aircraft
