The Transall C-160 first flew in 1963. Production was completed in 1972, but in
1977 the program was reinstated to produce a “new generation” C-160 for France.
The last of these new generation aircraft entered service in 1987. The wings are
high-mounted and equally tapered outboard of the engines with blunt tips. Two
turboprop engines are mounted under and extend beyond the wings’ leading edges.
The fuselage is long, thick, and tapered to the rear with a round, solid nose,
stepped cockpit and upswept tail section. The tail flats are mid-mounted on a
thinned body, equally tapered with blunt tips. The fin is tall and tapered with
a blunt tip and a fairing in the leading edge.
