Roden 333 Douglas C-133A Cargomaster 1:144 Scale Model Plane
In the early 1950s, the United States Air Force Military Air Transport Service already operated several successful types of new transport aircraft, such as the Lockheed C-130 Hercules and Douglas C-124 Globemaster II, the latter considered heavy because it could carry loads weighing more than 30 tons. However, it had serious limitations with respect to cargo dimensions, as well as structural problems, since the fuselage loading level was quite high from the ground surface.
At the beginning of 1952, the Air Force announced plans to purchase a new type of aircraft for the MATS under the Logistic Carrier Support System SS402L program. According to the specifications, the aircraft had to be able to lift into the air cargoes weighing more than 45 tons and of super-large clearance.
