The Argosy AW series of aircraft was used by the Royal Air Force for its capability to accommodate 69 troops, 48 stretcher cases or 29,000 lb of freight. This meant it could carry military equipment such as the Saracen or Ferret armored cars, or artillery such as the 105mm howitzer or Wombat. In December 1970 the last Argosies were retired by the RAF in favor of the Lockheed Hercules. Argosy AW planes were also used by several nations’ airlines in the civil capacity.
