Unloading of the Messerschmitt Me.323 «Giant» Transport Aircraft

Unloading of the German heavy transport aircraft Messerschmitt Me.323 «Giant» (Messerschmitt Me.323 «Gigant»). Messerschmitt Me.323 «Giant» transport aircraft were widely used to supply German forces in North Africa and Italy, as well as in the end of 1943 – the first half of 1944 two squadrons of Messerschmitt Me.323 «Giant» transport planes perform tasks on the Eastern Front, in particular voyages to Odessa and Sevastopol.

Messerschmitt Me.323 «Giant» transport plane was not the most successful aircraft in the atmosphere of hostilities of World War II, but less so to me, he had a number of advantages (high capacity, efficiency, maintainability) and is the world’s first dedicated military transport aircraft in which a variety of advanced technical solutions (wide fuselage, large front gruzolyuk convertible cargo compartment, mnogokolёsnoe chassis) have been applied.
