Updated September 7th, 2017 to include version 1C and SP 1C – Now Supports P3D v4!
Compatible with FSX, FSX Steam and Prepar3D V3 and V4.
The Transall C-160 spent 50 years providing logistical support to many of the world’s air forces. A truly versatile aircraft providing aerial refuelling, electronic intelligence, communications and of course cargo discharge. This quality aircraft at a reasonable price is the first of many fantastic aircraft combining both realism and quality from new developer JSS Simulations.
Introducing the Transall C-160
The Transall C-160 (C-160) is a military transport aircraft. It was designed to meet specific German and French Air Cargo requirements by a specially formed consortium of MBB, Aerospatiale and VFW-Fokker. This consortium was called “Transporter-Allianz” which is where the name TransAll comes from. It was also sold to both the South African and Turkish Air Forces.
The C-160 first flew in 1963 and remained in service for over 50 years, providing logistical support to numerous overseas operations and deployments. It has performed specialist roles including aerial refuelling, electronic intelligence and communications platform.
The C-160 is a twin turbo prop engined tactical transport with a large cargo hold, a high mounted wing (wing areas 160m2) and ramp access at the rear underneath an upswept tail. It is ideal for cargo and troop transport duties (airdrop 88 paratroopers, transport 90 equipped troops or 62 stretchers) with a payload of 16,000 kgs, aerial supply and equipment deliveries, frontline service and casualty evacuation. The fuselage was designed to be compatible with international railway loading gauges to further improve cargo logistics and loading.
Tactically the C-160 has a superior short airfield performance which includes its ability to perform steep descents of up to 20 degrees, take off from 700m long airstrips and perform landings on 400-metre-long airstrips. It can carry up to 8.5 tonnes for 5,000 kms.
Each Rolls Royce Tyne engine has an auxiliary generator system which provides the C-160 with both electricity and hydraulic pressure. An auxiliary power unit provides power whilst on the ground and in occasional mid-air emergencies.
The Transall C-160 comes with fully working systems including pressurization, highly detailed static elements including wheel chocks and pitot covers, 3D pilots and even a simulated discharge procedure.
JSS Simulations have teamed up with Milviz/REX and the Transall C-160 comes complete with an integrated API for the Advantage Advanced Weather Radar
