Douglas C-52

The Douglas C-52 was the designation given to six Pratt & Whitney powered DC-3s impressed by the USAAF in the aftermath of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, five from the production line and one that was already in service. They differed from the similarly powered C-48s in having the full DC-3 passenger capacity of 28 seats, while the C-48s had between 10 and 21 seats. Two more Pratt & Whitney powered DC-3s were impressed as C-68s.
