In 1951 the U.S. Navy evaluated the Douglas Super DC-3 (USAF YC-47F) and ordered the modernization of 98 C-47s (USN designation R4D). The aircraft had new outer wing panels, a longer fuselage and tail unit, engine nancelles that fully enclosed the undercarriage and up-rated R-1280-80 engines. The aircraft was designated R4D-8, which became the C-117D after 1962. The C-117s were operational with the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps until the early 1990s.
