In 1967 the Fairchild Hiller company as part of the Combat Hornet program received an order for the conversion of the C-119 transport into a combat air support machine. Although the C-119, like the veteran C-47, was not a modern design, its size and its two powerful engines allowed the installation of more effective equipment. The first 26 AC-119G Shadow machines, a contract for the construction of which was signed in 1968, were in essence "large AC-47s". The same range of armament was installed on board, while the C-119's big cargo compartment enabled the fitting of big analog calculators, which provided the crew with data for accurate firing. In May 1968, the first machines were delivered to the Air Force and were immediately sent on to units for working up.
