WOW! I flew the -9 several times, contact and formation. It changed my thinking about T-props (as a "jet" pilot). Incredible fun, performance, efficiency, modern avionics. Can't say enough. Now, albeit somewhat changed, the USAF/USN T-6A Texan 2, a great choice. Wish I could have my own!

The PC-9 was not the Peacemaker, the Peacemaker was a military version of the PC-6. The PC-6 had 5 hardpoints on the wings and carried a pindle mounted XM-197 3-barrell 20mm gatling gun in the cargo area, it was fired by a gunner. The USAF perceived over 100 of these a/c covering S. Vietnam providing air cover. The introduction of the shoulder fired heat seeking missle put an end to that "Credible Chase" program. The Royal Thai AF got the 25 Peacemakers in exchange for a number of T-28s to Laos. This was in the 1974 time frame.
