The C-1 Trader is a transport plane featured in Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.


Although the full extent of its service history is unknown, the Trader had seen some use by Osea and Yuktobania.[1]

The most well-known pilot of the aircraft was former Belkan ace Wolfgang Buchner, who utilized it during his time in exile at Sand Island Air Force Base as a mechanic under the alias "Peter N. Beagle" of the 703rd Maintenance Company.[1]

At the beginning of the Circum-Pacific War, Buchner flew the C-1 during Yuktobania's failed bombing of Sand Island and returned to base the next morning.[2] During Operation Crossroad, a single Yuktobanian C-1 was stolen by Jack Bartlett to bring the rescued prime minister Seryozha Viktrovich Nikanor to safety from the military government.[3]



  • The C-1 is the only aircraft in Ace Combat 5 that is referred to by its designation in dialogue. During Heartbreak One, when Bartlett is taxiing down the runway, a Yuktobanian soldier may say, "C-1 moving towards the runway.".
  • The Cyrillic word СЮР is seen painted on the tail of the C-1 in "Heartbreak One". It is an abbreviation of Союз Юктобанийских Республик, the Russian transliteration of "Union of Yuktobanian Republics".
