The Awesome US Invention Against Forest Fires - MAFFS System Installed on a C-130 Hercules Plane
The Modular Airborne Firefighting System, also known by its acronym MAFFS, is self-sufficient technical equipment which can be used on board a cargo aircraft, such as a Lockheed C-130 Hercules, and that allows the aircraft to operate in firefighting operations as a "Airtanker". This allows the use of Air Force aircraft as fire-fighting aircraft, in case of need.
