Douglas EC-47Q

The Douglas EC-47Q was the designation given to electronic warfare versions of the C-47 powered by the 1,290hp Pratt & Whitney R-2000-4 engine. Like the lower powered EC-47N and EC-47P they carried a wide range of radio and radar monitoring systems, including Systems X, Y, Z-1/Q-1 and Z-2/Q-2, and were used to listen in to North Vietnamese transmissions.
