Flight testing began in 1942 and eventually more than 12,000 CG-4As were procured. Fifteen companies manufactured CG-4As, with 1,074 built by the Waco Aircraft Company of Troy, Ohio.<br/>The CG-4A was constructed of fabric-covered wood and metal and was crewed by a pilot and copilot. It could carry 13 troops and their equipment or either a jeep, a quarter-ton truck, or a 75mm howitzer loaded through the upward-hinged nose section. C-46s and C-47s usually were used as tow aircraft.<br/>CG-4As went into operation in July 1943 during the Allied invasion of Sicily. They participated in the D-Day assault on France on June 6, 1944, and in other important airborne operations in Europe and in the China-Burma-India Theater. Until late in the war, gliders were generally considered expendable in combat and were abandoned or destroyed after landing.<br/><br/>SPECIFICATIONS<br/>Span: 83 ft. 8 in. <br/>Length: 48 ft. 4 in.<br/>Height: 12 ft. 7 in. <br/>Weight: 7,500 lbs. loaded <br/>Armament: None <br/>Engine: None <br/>Cost: $24,000 <br/>Serial number: 45-27948<br/>PERFORMANCE <br/>Maximum towed speed: 150 mph.<br/><br/>Special thanks to support from Australia on this project.
