INTRODUCTION

Military transports are unarmed aircrafts transporting cargo.  The cargo may be made of people or freight.

Military transports may or may not drop their cargo in flight
Military transports are or are not tactical transports (ability operate from rough terrain rather than an airstrip)
Military transports and are either land-based, carrier-based or sea-based aircrafts, with amphibious being a sub-variant of the latter
Military transport may be performed by helicopters
Human cargo could be passengers, commandos, paratroopers or casualties to be evacuated
Freight could be made of general freight, fuel or ammunitions.
Flights (missions) associated with military transport aircrafts may be combat or non-combat flights.

In general terms, the following aircrafts may be encountered :

Prepared runway only aircrafts (not necessarily paved)
Tactical transport able to operate from rough terrain (landing in the Field)
Aircrafts able to operate from an aircraft carrier
Transport helicopters (all compatible with an aircraft carrier)
Seaplanes : restricted to water based operations
Amphibious aircrafts : able to operate indifferently from water or prepared runways
Aircrafts equipped with paratroop or cargo doors which may be opened in flight (dropping cargo over Zone)
Aircraft which may be refueled in-flight

These notions will make transport aircrafts vary one from the other, as not all transport aircrafts are the same.  Compatibility summary :

TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT FAMILIES

Military Transports designs (TM & COD) may also be available as airliners, tankers, etc.
This page highlighting cargo transport, not all passenger carrying aircrafts are mentioned here, nor are liaison aircrafts
Military Tranports aircrafts may carry passenger - their number is always the same as for any Airliner variant of the same design
Most AAC TM/COD aircrafts have an historical reference (details not respected) - Some are further fantasy disgressions from their original inspiration
