On approach, the C160's noise is similar to that of a C130 (minus the latest models).
Also on departure, noise levels are comparable, with the 2 props on the C160 producing a different sound than the 4 props on the C130.
BTW, I saw a German C160 yesterday (19-APR) parked at IAD. Was too distant to get reg' but the unit's logo could have been the one from LTG 62 based at GAF Wunstorf (my homebase):

Does the French base any military aircraft in French Polynesia? I'm asking because this same aircraft, 61-MX, was at HNL on 03 Apr. I did get to look at it up close and get pictures, and yes, it was a French C-160.
