C-1A

Notes: This Japanese transport was first accepted into service in 1970 to replace the C-46 in its Air Defense Force’s service. Looking similar to a smaller, shorter C-17, these aircraft have been steadily upgraded with more advanced electronics allowing it to be used under almost any conditions and to drop large items or do LAPES insertions. The primary use for the C-1 is to supply outlying islands, support Japanese industry, and to support military assistance and humanitarian operations.

Twilight 2000 Notes: During the Twilight War, they were standouts in the defense of islands like Okinawa, and were also used for limited paratrooper drops as far away as Korea, Russia, and the Philippines. In addition, an electronic warfare variant, the EC-1, was used to jam Russian and North Korean radio and radar transmissions to good effect, as well as to conduct reconnaissance.
