Mission 8 - Weapons and Vehicles
Iran Hostage Rescue Mission Part 2

DeHavilland DHC-6 Twin Otter
An agile, versatile craft, the Twin Otter is used for scientific missions like spotting marine life, taking chemical samples of the atmosphere, and other staples of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

C-130 Hercules
A workhorse among airlift planes, the Hercules can land on a dirt strip in the middle of nowhere, or paradrop troops above a hostile area. Capable of working in conditions from desert to the arctic, the plane handles supply, medical missions, and fire-fighting for the US Forest Service.

First created as the XM177E1 by the Colt engineers in 1965, the CAR-15 was designed as a lightweight assault carbine. One early problem -- carbon build-up inside the gun when fired on automatic - was cut out when the weapon was fitted with chrome-plated barrels.

KC-135 Stratotanker
Built from the same model Boeing used for the commercial 707, the Stratotanker launched in 1954, when the Air Force purchased 29 models. More than 700 of the planes were eventually built, and 550 still remain in service - a testament to how durable and versatile they are.

Primarily Airborne Mine Countermeasures helicopters, these were originally Marine CH-53Dís borrowed by the Navy and fitted with minesweeping equipment, extra fuel tanks, and cargo hooks. Based out of Norfolk, the helicopters debuted in 1973, when they were used to clear mines from North Vietnamese ports.

C-141 Starlifter
The first jet aircraft designed by the military as a troop and cargo carrier, the C-141 now handles a broad range of airlift missions - bringing troops and supplies long distances, inserting them by land or airdrop, and bringing back sick and wounded men from battle.
