The NF-2 is used to provide a portable light source for USAF night operations in areas where more permanent illumination is not available. Uses include aircraft maintenance, munitions loading and emergency or remote-area lighting.

The NF-2 has two 445-watt mercury vapor floodlights on a retractable platform which may be raised to any height between 78 and 144 inches using a handcrank. A two-cylinder air-cooled gasoline engine drives a generator to supply power to the lights and to an external receptacle. The outlet may be used for soldering irons, drills and other accessory equipment allowing "on-the-spot" repairs. The lights also may be powered by an external power source if necessary.
