Turbine Sound Studios proudly presents the HD version of the C-5 Galaxy TF-39 soundpack for FS2004 recorded in HD High definition.
The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is a large military transport aircraft built by Lockheed.
It provides the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability,
one that can carry outsize and oversize cargos, including all air-certifiable cargo.
The Galaxy has many similarities to its smaller C-141 Starlifter predecessor, and the later C-17 Globemaster.
The C-5 is among the largest military aircraft in the world.
The C-5 Galaxy had a complicated development; significant cost overruns were experienced and Lockheed suffered significant financial difficulties.
Shortly after entering service, fractures in the wings of many aircraft were discovered and the C-5 fleet were restricted in capability until corrective work was conducted.
The C-5M Super Galaxy is an upgraded version with new engines and modernized avionics designed to extend its service life beyond 2040.
The C-5 Galaxy has been operated by USAF since 1969.
In that time, it has been used to support US military operations in all major contingencies including Vietnam, Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan;
as well as in support of allies, such as Israel during the Yom Kippur War and NATO operations in the Gulf War.
The C-5 has also been used to distribute humanitarian aid and disaster relief, and support the US Space Shuttle program run by NASA.
