--- Nod C-17 Globemaster III Cargo Plane ---

“Speed is the essence of war. Take advantage of the enemy’s unpreparedness; travel by unexpected routes and strike him where he has taken no precautions.”

So reads Sun Tzu’s Art of War. This passage in particular seems to have made quite an impression on Nod commanders, hence their method of moving forces around the globe.

After all, what better way to move an entire army than through the skies; through the Wild Blue Yonder—a wilderness as vast as the entire planetscape? And what better aircraft to do the heavy lifting than the C-17 Globemaster? With a carrying capacity of some 170,000 pounds, this plane can ship any and all of Kane's armored vehicles to any place around the globe with ease.

Despite being unarmed, non-stealth aircraft, there have reportedly been very few of these transports lost. This high survival rate can be traced to an incident in Somalia, where GDI pilots did indeed shoot down a Nod C-17. Though GDI officials claimed the transport held a cargo of stolen M2 Bradleys, the Brotherhood conversely claimed the plane contained little more than medical supplies en route to the desperate populace. The media supported Nod's claims; images of destitute women and children scavenging the wreckage flooded television screens throughout the Western world, prompting a massive backlash which effectively rendered GDI unwilling to use military force in halting Nod's shipments.

Modeled by CNCS-Chris and skin & cameo by Lazy6Pyro, all you Nod commanders out there can look forward to the sight of these grand aircraft as they deliver your war machine right to your front door—much like Santa Claus, except with tools of death instead of toys.

Looking good! I don't suppose it would be fair to make this a valid target unit... ¬_¬

lol no, not really. I did that once in C&C1, and then put Bazookas in the flight path... the mission was pretty easy from that point on :P

I can imagine... XD After all, it's a very acceptable and proven battlefield tactic. Cut off the enemy's supply lines, and he'll shrivel up and die. Too bad really, I wanted to see the look on his face when the tanks start rolling in...

Time to drop some MCV's on the nearby GDI base units on the Air Strip.

I really like the camo on this plane :)
