Modular Airborne FireFighting System
The Modular Airborne FireFighting System or MAFFS is a self-contained unit used for aerial firefighting that can be loaded onto a C-130 Hercules, a military cargo transport, which then allows the aircraft to be used as an air tanker against wildfires.[1] This allows the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to use military aircraft from the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve to serve as an emergency backup resource to the civilian air tanker fleet.[1][2]

I've been impressed with C130s ever since seeing one in an air show that was outfitted with rockets on both sides, showing how they were outfitted during the Viet Nam war in order to be able to take off on short runways. They fired those rockets partway down runway, and was that ever loud. Unbelievable how that plane shot up into the air at that point.
