The Douglas C-47 is one of the most famous aircraft of all time and is a true legend. The C-47 is the military version of the Douglas DC-3 airliner and was used during World War II on all fronts for transporting, landing of paratroopers, as tugs for gliders and for reconnaissance purposes. The aircraft was extremely robust and versatile, it's not surprising that she became the most widely used military transport aircraft in the world. She became famous as the "Candy Bomber" during the Allied airlift to supply West Berlin under Soviet blockade. To this day, hundreds of aircraft of this type are still flying.

The C-47 was usually unarmed. However, During the Vietnam War the Americans built three 7.62-mm Gatling type miniguns into some of them and designated as AC-47 gunship. These were used to enemy combat vehicle convoys and troop concentrations.

Historical Picture

The C-47 has its own entry point. If you use it, you will spawn on one of the free seats on the plane. So you can virtually guarantee endless and very fast replenishment of parachutists without stopover. This will increase the tactical depth to another element, since you can attack even remote or hard to reach flag points surprising. Also, you still in the plane after getting off the seat and door is the only way to exit. So it is theoretically possible to have all players of one side on an airplane. Then in order not to lose any of his passengers, the pilot has the option to close the door by holding the left mouse button. With the right mouse button you can drop ammo boxes on parachute.

The C-47 can hardly defend themselves and due to their size and slow airspeed they are an easy target for enemy air defense.

The C-47 is also used as a tow plane for Waco glider. You should avoid reckless maneuvers in any case. The notching of the rope is handled by the pilot of the glider, so you have no influence on this.
