The C-5 Galaxy is one of the largest aircraft in the world. It can carry outsize and oversize cargo intercontinental ranges and can take off or land in relatively short distances. Ground crews can load and off load the C-5 simultaneously at the front and rear cargo openings.

History

Strangereal

During the Usean Continental War, the Usean Allied Forces made use of C-5 with callsign Dryman to transport a VIP across Lambert Mountains. [1]

During Operation Katina, Free Erusea utilized the C-5 as one of their primary transport aircraft.[2]

The C-5 Galaxy was used by both Osean Air Defense Force and Yuktobanian Air Force during the Circum-Pacific War. The most notable C-5 use during this period was Osea's Mother Goose One which was used to secretly transport Osea's president Vincent Harling to North Point[3] and Yuktobania's attack on Apito International Airport[4] in which C-5s were used to transport tan

During the Aurelian War, the C-5 was utilized by Leasath Air Force, some of which were parked at Puna Base when Gryphus One and other elements from Aurelian Air Force attacked the base.[5]

Joint Assault Universe

Valahia operated a single C-5, "Gizmo" during Valahia Crisis.[6]

The C-5 Galaxy is initially featured in mission #5, "Greased Lightning", where a single one is parked at the enemy base in the end of the level, which will lead the player to the mission "Bear Tracks" if it is destroyed, and later again in #14B, "Dark Star", where a formation of five Galaxies appears as the mission target.

Air Combat

The C-5 Galaxy is the game's only transport aircraft. It is first featured in "Destroy Enemy Supply Lines", where a squadron of four transports is featured as the main targets, and a single aircraft is later seen in "Fighter Superiority". The aircraft is prominently featured in the mission "VIP Recovery Mission", where the player must escort a government C-5 as it lands in a mountain airfield to extricate a vital officer.

Trivia

  • The C-5s in Operation Katina possess an unusually high damage threshold, being able to take sustained gunfire and repeated missile impacts before suffering any considerable damage. They are tied with the rockbed in the main game's mission "Closure" as the most damage-reseilent targets in the Ace Combat series. However, a single TLS touch from an ADF-01A/F FALKEN is sufficient to shoot it out of the sky.
  • The YAF (Yuktobanian Air Force) C-5 are painted with the American European One camouflage used during the Cold War on C-5 planes operating in Europe and also on some A-10 Thunderbolt IIs before Operation: Desert Storm.
  • Interestingly, in Ace Combat 5, all airborne C-5s within the campaign are simply labeled as "C-5", but any landed C-5s, as well as all C-5s within Arcade Mode are labeled as "C-5B", despite possessing the exact same model. A similar quirk occurs with the B-52 between Arcade and Campaign.
