: Hello all, I am doing some research and need to know what were the main types ot wwII paratroop transport planes used by the Americans and British. Also does anyone know any good websites to research these types of aircraft. Thanks for any help available!
: Hey. There were many types of aircraft used in the paratrooper role, but the main one used by the U.S. and Great Britain was the C-47. This plane was produced in huge numbers in the U.S.. This plane was probably the most widely used transport during and after the war. Also, the U.S. and Great Britain used gliders to great effect. These gliders were towed by, of course, the C-47. Hope this helps.
