Lore:

The C-17 is the first jet to enter service for the navy, it comes equipped with folding wings, four high-repetition machine guns with an effective range of up to 3 kilometers and a recommended distance of up to 1.5 kilometers, it also has a hook for aircraft carrier operation and an emergency parachute to help slow down if the hook is compromised.

The aircraft has wings without flapping to provide greater support during landings and takeoffs and although it was designed as a naval aircraft it also demonstrated good results in dogfights without using guided missiles.
Undoubtedly the most striking weapon to come equipped is the KH-1 torpedo which, through an electronic paraphernalia, is able to chase its targets for attacks without the need for a dangerous approach of enemy ships.

The first prototype flew on March 3, 1947 and the aircraft went into operation on January 1, 1951. In an interview about the development of the aircraft, the minister of aeronautics said: "Why are you pointing this camera at me?"

The aircraft was presented in a 1950 instructional film "Carrier Jets" from chapters 1 to 3.
