Boeing 707-300:

Boeing 727-200:

Can't think of any, but the 721 is C-22.

737-200:

T-43

747-300:

None that I know of. It's not operated by any military AFAIK.


LY744.

are there any 747's operated by the military?

why is the 737 a trainer but the others cargo?

VC-25A is operated by the military, as are E-4, and YAL-1A. I'll let you figure out what type those are.

The 737 is a trainer because it is used as a trainer .

There's now also 73Ns (C-40) in service, and 752s (C-32).

To add to above- These are just US designators. THough some are the same in other countries like the E-3 etc.

Boeing 707-300

C-137, E-3B/C, E-8C, TC-18, E-6B (E-6 has CFM-56engines)

Boeing 727-200
None in service as noted above, the 727-100 is the C-22

Boeing 737-200

T-43 is a navigator trainer out of Randolph AFB. The C-40 A/B/C is for the new 737-700BBJ and 700 baselines for the AF and Navy. The Navy hires some 737-200s for pilot seasoning here at Tinker for the E-6B though they aren't designated- they are run by civilians.

Boeing 747-300
None operated, the VC-25 is the 747-200, the E-4 is the -200, and AL-1 is the 747-400C, though the rest will be full upper deck -400s.

The only other country I can think of that has a designation system for military aircraft is Canada. The 707-300 would be the CC-137 (no coincidence).

LY744.

Oh I meant 747-400 F for frieghter not C for Combi, I had my mind at work and was using C for 'Cargo' but to clarify the first Airborne laser was a 400F and the next 6 will be switched to Full upper deck 400s.

Yes and as far as I know they still do, not 100% though.

Understood. Combi is designated M by Boeing, not C (probably M for modifiable instead of C for convertible).

Why the change to full upper decks? Not enough room in the YAL-1 for everything they want to put in?

As far as I've heard from our folks out there now, it is for more Crew quarters. I don't know if #2 is Freighter version also, but the rest as of right now should be Full upper decks.

The USAF operated a single ex-Singapore Airlines B727-200, 83-4618, for ANG trooping purposes (along with 4 -100s). This -200 was designated C-22C (the 4 ex-National/Pan Am -100s were C-22Bs, and a former Lufthansa -100 was the sole C-22A).

83-4618 is now in storage at AMARC at Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson. The C-22Bs are gradually being sold for scrapping. These aircraft are being replaced by the leased C-40Cs (B737-700 BBJ).

Here are the Serials for the USAF C-22s I have to add to above notes:

C-22A 84-0193 bought from FAA for Southern Command transport, retired in 1991

C-22B 83-4610, 83-4612, 83-4615, 83-4616, these four (as noted above) were National and Pan Am airlines 727s -100s which were obtained in 1983 For the D.C. ANG, 1 was stored in Maxton, NC I think 2 are still inservice. THe ASTRA C-38 replaced them for the D.C. ANG

C-22C 83-4618 this stretched -200 series never showed up on USAF inventory. It worked for Central Command out of DC, then went to Wright-Pat AFB, in OHIO, current whereabouts unknown??

The point is to destroy missiles in the boost phase, and eventully destroy aircraft though that comes later, depending on your view of the Geneva conventions prohibition on Laz-ing pilots eyes, versus the whole aircraft.

I know an ABMer out there now working testing on it (it will have several ABMs on board) and the test have worked so far. Things are on schedule.
