From this camouflage scheme, it is easier to identify the which one is the A and B models. The B models have a darker green color at the front nose, while the A models have lighter green.

The C-5 is consider antiquity by today's standards, but still gets the job done better than any aircraft in the air force inventory. Frankly, I believe the C-5 is underpowered, considering how the smaller C-17 have engines that produce just as much thrust. It's good that they are re-engining the aircraft, though I will miss that distinctive noise when it flies by. That noise was what made the C-5 the coolest aircraft around.

The first time you hear the noise of the engines, it sounds like it is going to explode.
