The General Aircraft Hamilcar was designed to carry heavy payloads to landing zones. It could carry a Tetrarch, Locust, two Bren carriers, a 17 pdr gun, a mobile Bofors gun, or other equipment.
The Hamilcar was made from wood.
The cargo bay was 25' 6" / 7.77 m long, 8' / 2.44 m wide, and 7' 6" / 2.29 m high. The nose of the Hamilcar was hinged for easy loading and unloading.
There were wheels for takeoff which were jettisoned allowing for the Hamilcar to land on skids.
The usual tug for the Hamilcar were Halifaxes, Lancasters, and sometimes Stirlings.
