Abstract : The C 160-Transall was initiated by the French-German Transporter Allianz Consortium in the late 50ies. The aircraft was developed and produced to specifications of the French and German Airforces. The aircraft was built in a partnership with VFW-Fokker later merging into the transport division of MBB, which recently was set up on its own as Deutsche Airbus GmbH (DA) in the course of the MBB and Daimler Benz merger. DA and Aerospatiale are again partners in the EUROFLAG consortium (European Future Large Aircraft Group) which was constituted with British Aerospace, Airitalia and Casa as further partners to manage the future large aircraft programme, the envisaged C 130 and C 160 successor.
