Historically Description Edit
"The Farchild C-119 - nicknamed the "Flying Boxcar" for its ungainly profile - was a multirole military transport incorporating lessons learned from earlier Farchild cargo planes to maximize carrying capacity and performance. The aircraft was developed in Hagerstown, Maryland and saw service from the late 1940s through the early 1970s, primarily as a troop and equipment transport.
In one demonstration of its impressive capabilities during the Korean War, Flying Boxcars parachuted an entire bridge in eight sections to retreating UN troops with their backs against a river, enabling them to complete the withdrawal and saving the units from being overrun. Farchild eventually built a gunship version based on the airframe, called the AC-119G Shadow, which saw service throughout the Vietnam War, even when this war ended in 75s. Many C-119s ended their service life as airtankers fighting wildfires well into the 1980s."
