Rotating Power

A ratchet is inserted into a bomb latching mechanism on a conventional rotary launcher, at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Feb. 1. 2017. The ratchet locks down the loaded munitions onto the CRL, which can rotate through either eight joint direct attack munitions, and extended-range joint air-to-surface standoff missiles and even miniature air-launched decoys. The CRL was being prepped to undergo its first live-fire training mission. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Ted Daigle/released)
