As arguably the most respected military transport ever built, the Globemaster III brings a whole range of unique features to the table that you can easily get to grips with and fall in love with, given time. The high-wing, 4-engine T-tail style made sure that this was distinct enough to capture the attention of the right people, making it nice and easy for people to get into the cockpit and feel truly welcome.
It was used as a large equipment supply service, as well as a large-scale troop transport that could fit people to get them from one airfield to the next, or to get troops landed in harsher climates and terrains that would have been beyond a more traditional transport. They were perfect for use whether it’s needed for night or day operations, with the power and versatility of the model being backed up by the durability and strength of the aircraft.
It’s perfect for long distance flights as well as carrying large quantities of heavy equipment; they frequently take on payloads that no other military transport would eve try and carry. They are very useful for carrying unpredictable and dangerous materials, too, giving you a true appreciation of what makes an aircraft like this so incredibly popular across the board.

I bought C17 and CH53. Helicopter works fine and nice to fly but when load C17 it is simulator pause mode and wont come out despite pressing P or using options. Have contacted Virtavia but they say no tech reason for it doing this as been out since 2010. Waiting to hear back.

This aircraft is simple to fly and very detailed in and outside of the airplane. The sounds are excellent. The only problem is getting the rear cargo door down to the ground.
