R5C (C-46) Commando

The Curtiss C-46 Commando holds the distinction of being the largest and heaviest twin-engine aircraft to see operational service in the Pacific Theater. The C-46 proved to be a more powerful aircraft than its C-47 counterpart, possessing a greater load carrying capacity and better performance at high altitude. Marine Corps Commandos, designated R5Cs, were used as cargo and troop transports.
