Support Aircraft Test Case-T6B Texan II

This test case is based on the Support Aircraft Template 881C structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the Texan II. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the Texan II program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of the Texan II nor has any attempt been made to simulate the multiple production lots of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the support aircraft template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known aircraft program.
