Fairchild C-123
The C-123 Provider was a tactical airlifter that saw a lot of action during the Vietnam War. Although designed and primarily used as a troop and cargo transport, some Providers, known as the UC-123, were outfitted with special nozzles that would disperse defoliant or insecticides. The C-123 could carry 61 troops and transport 15,000 pounds of cargo. (USAF Historical Photo)
