I will give you some background info as I know it,

The Herc was developed to rescue the Hostages from the Iranian Hostage seige, it was modded ( 2 of them) to allow it to land and take off from a soccer pitch, that being the only area they had to put it into. it basically involved strapping missile motors to the herc to stop it and help it up.
The project was abandoned after the above incident and the other Herc ended up in a museum........ See, suprising what i know http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
