The DC-3 is a transport plane flown by Sahranian airliners in ArmA: Armed Assault. It was added with the release of the Queen's Gambit expansion pack.


  • Role:
    • Civil transportation
« Douglas DC3 is a propeller-driven aircraft that revolutionized air transport in 1930s and 1940s. Military versions of this airplane were known as C-47 Dakota. After the World War Two, thousands of surplus C-47 were converted to civilian aircrafts and became a standard issue for virtually all world's airlines. There are many DC3s in active service to this day, especially in the poorer parts of the planet.
Library Description

This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Queen's Gambit expansion pack.

The DC-3 is a propeller-driven, low-wing monoplane with twin engines.

An old but rugged and reliable workhorse, the DC-3 serves as the mainstay of Sahrani's domestic flight agencies. Capable of carrying up to fifteen passengers at a time, the DC-3 can also be utilised as an improvised transporter for paratroopers.

Its ungainly airframe and use of outdated propellers naturally render it slower than its jet-powered counterparts.

Furthermore, while the DC-3 is capable of reaching a top speed of approximately 301 km/h in-flight, it can only maintain this speed if it remains at a level altitude. Attempting to make even the slightest of turns will cause a drastic drop in its airspeed; not to mention that its overall agility is quite poor to begin with.

Crew Capacity
Not including the pilot, the DC-3 supports up to fifteen passengers who sit in the rear cabin.


The DC-3 has a base armour value of 50.


Its hull can withstand up to 50 points of damage.


  • The DC-3 is the only unarmed, fixed-wing plane in Armed Assault.
    • It was also the first, non-light transport plane to become available in the series until the inclusion of ArmA 2's C-130J Hercules.
