Lockheed C-5M Super Galaxy 1/144
Lockheed C-5 Galaxy – the largest American military transport aircraft ever built. Its first flight took place in 1968, and overall 131 machines of various modifications were produced, many of which remain in military service today. In 1998, a program for upgrading earlier model machines began, according to which from 2006 to 2014, 52 C-5A, C-5B and C-5C variants were converted to the latest C-5M standard. The upgrades primarily involved the power installation, which made it possible to significantly improve all flight characteristics, and also included complete replacement of the plane’s avionics, improved design of the fuselage, undercarriage and life support systems. The C-5M program currently extends to 2040 and maintains in service one of the world’s main heavy-duty transport aircraft.
