The major weakness in the US military's ability to rapidly deploy forces is a dependence on large, modern airfields. Most areas of the world have few suitable runways like Haiti. C-130's converted to seaplanes can operate from airfields, rivers, lakes, and oceans is the solution. The C-130 design already has high wings, and large modern seaplanes are currently in operation, like the Canadair CL-415 and Japanese Shinmaywa US-1A.

Lockheed-Martin developed a "floatplane" conversion kit that allows a C-130 Hercules to operate from water. Imagine a squadron of C-130s flying in tandem and landing on a river or off a coast, dumping out a line of 12 amphibious vehicles, and taking off without ever coming to a stop. Keep in mind that modern seaplanes have wheeled landing gear to operate from regular airbases as well. Current C-130s can operate from less than 0.0001% of our planet, while seaplanes can operate from 70%.

If we can develop this capability I feel there would be much less criticism about the slow U.S. and international response.

1. You are plagiarizing g2mil.com.
2. That website has no idea what it's talking about, and clearly neither do you if you are posting lines from it verbatim.
