Private industry can come up with various more dedicated pallets too. Hope the final assemblers in India use their imagination towards this.

Other than the medical container, the best turn around time for typical transport items might not be that much longer when compared to a conventional layout. Maybe even more perhaps as the entire compartment has to be fixed properly to the helicopter fra...
