An accurately scaled and modeled low polygon C-17 Globemaster currently in use by the United States 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. The United States purchased the C-17 to replace its aging C-141 Starlifter cargo aircraft. It has proven to be a capable and reliable heavy lifter and as of the end of 2010 the USAF had 203 C-17s in its inventory, with a further 20 funded for purchase.
