Kawasaki C-1

The C-1 medium-sized troop and freight transport was designed to meet a JASDF requirement for a replacement for its former fleet of Curtiss C-46s. The first flying prototype took off for the first time on 12 November 1970 and the first production aircraft was delivered in December 1974. By 1981 31 production C-1s had been delivered, including several long-range aircraft with an additional 4,732 litre wing centre-section fuel tank.

It is a shame that Japanese law forbids export of military equipment as there were some overseas interest in this aircraft.

Maybe they can make a civil variant, like the C-130 and L100. There would be a market for cargo carrying.

I see this plane flying regularly but at airshows they demonstrate amazing maneuvrability for such a large plane. It is a shame that Japanese law forbids export of military equipment as there were some overseas interest in this aircraft.

Kawasaki has now completed its replacement, which is a much larger plane with similar layout.
