Known as the "Skytrain", the C-47 was the workhorse of the Army Air Corps transport units. Carried 82D troopers into battle at Sicily, Salerno, Normandy, and Holland.

The DC-3 was transformed by the military and renamed the C-47 during WWII. Unfortunatley with this skin, we are unable to recreate the true look of the aircraft and restore the vintage look. Items missing are the tail number on the tail, the stick number as well as formation set i.e. 6E. I have no idea what the G identifier meant. Enjoy this repaint.

Texture Creater George Heib.

Installation:
