C-47 Black and White

A C-47 in real life

The C-47 Skytrain or Dakota is a military transport aircraft that was developed from the Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the allies during World War II and remained in front line operations through the 1950s with a few remaining in operation to this day.

It was later used for the basis of the AC-47 Spooky ground support gunship, which would later on be succeeded by the AC-130 Gunship.

Battlefield 1942Edit

The C-47 Dakota acts as a mobile spawn point in Battlefield 1942. Any Allied players on a map with this plane can spawn inside of it, as long as the plane isn't full and hasn't been destroyed. The plane can fit a pilot, a door gunner who can rotate his machine gun to fire out of the doors on either side of the plane and four people sitting inside of the plane. If the plane is destroyed, it will quickly respawn at its original location.It can be very effective to drop Infantry over enemy positions, and respawn function makes dropping way faster. Main weakness of it is it's slow speed, making it vulnerable to Flakpanzers and Flak-38 positions. Best and most effective idea will be to operate alongside a F85 Goblin, which can protect it all times. On map Essen, it is the fastest respawning vehicle in whole base game. It will take few seconds before a new C-47 replaces the destroyed one.

The C-47 is a vehicle featured in Battlefield V, first appearing in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer. In the Pre-Alpha, the aircraft is used to drop British paratroopers during the Airborne phase of Grand Operations. Similar to the Dropship from Battlefield 3: End Game, the vehicle is AI controlled and will fly in a straight, preset path. Players can spawn in the C-47, and choose when to jump from the plane. Wehrmacht players can destroy C-47s with anti-aircraft emplacements such as the Flak 38, and can be awarded kills if there are enemy players inside when it is shot down.
