1963 C.160   Transall
Nord-Aviation, Hamburger Flugzeugbau,  and Vereinigte Flugtechnishe Werke (VFW) formed Transall (Transporter Allianz) in 1959 to develop a transport aircraft for France and Germany.  The prototype C.160 first flew in 1963.  Initial production ended in 1972.

With the end of the initial production run the Transall group was also ended.  Responsibility for continued production of the aircraft went to Aerospatiale in France and Messerschmitt-Boelkow-Blohm (MBB, now DaimlerChrysler Aerospace) in Germany. Both companies are now part of EADS (European Aeronautics Defense and Space).
