An accurately scaled and modeled low polygon C-17 Globemaster currently in use by the Royal Australian Air Force. With a polygon count of just 3920 (7020 tris) this model has been professionally developed for simulation and game use. It is properly uv mapped and fully textured. The primary texture is a 2048 x 2048 bitmap. All control surfaces, including flaps, slats, ailerons, elevators, rudder, thrust reversers, and landing gear are independent objects for easy animation.
This model is available here in .3ds, .fbx, .flt, .lwo (v 6.0), .max (v 2008), and .obj formats.
The C-17 Globemaster is a modern strategic transport aircraft developed in between the 1980’s and the 1990’s by McDonnell Douglas. Although its primary purpose is strategic airlift, it is also capable of performing tactical airlift, medical evacuation, and airdrop missions. Since its introduction in 1993 with the United States Air Force, it has also been ordered by the air forces of the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Qatar, NATO, the UAE and India. Australia recognised a need for a strategic airlift capability in 2005 and began looking for an aircraft. In March 2006 four C-17s where ordered and the first was delivered in November of that year. All Australian C-17s are based at RAAF Base Amberley in Queensland.
