This study is an operational Comparison of the CH-46E and HH-6OH as potential replacements for the CH-46D combat support helicopter. The Comparison is performed as a simulation using the Simulated Mobility Modeling and Analysis Toolbox (SMMAT). The model places each aircraft in a hypothetical CVBG consisting of eight ships, and has it perform a set of logistics missions. The missions are based on an analysis of seven HC detachments in support of Operation Desert Storm, and consist of internal and external cargo delivery, and passenger transport. The study concludes that for the scenario modeled, the CH- 46E is a more capable combat support platform, due in large part to its larger internal cargo capacity. Further study is recommended.
