Description

The Noratlas was built by the French aircraft manufacturer Nord post WW2, following a requirement by the French air force for a replacement of their C-47 Dakota aircraft and Junkers 52 transports that were now nearing the end of their operational careers.  Following its adoption by the Armée de l’Air, a number of other operators in Europe and Africa chose to procure the Noratlas for their own military air services. Finding itself in a similar situation to France, the Luftwaffe also purchased 187 aircraft for transport and parachute operations and became one of Nord’s biggest customers. Other Air Forces soon followed suit including Israel, Greece and Portugal.  Israel was another primary combat user of the Noratlas where its role in cargo transport, parachute drops and more covert operations was greatly appreciated.
