The Northrop Pioneer was built as a 40-passenger commercial transport aircraft, powered by three 800 hp (596 kW) Wright R-957 Cyclone engines. From it was developed the C-125 Raider for the USAF, 23 of which were built with 1,200 hp (894 kW) Wright R-1820-99 engines: 13 as C-125A assault transports and ten as C-125B Arctic rescue aircraft. A small number of these ‘Raider’ aircraft were released to the U.S. Forest Service as ‘Smoke Jumper’ transports
