Its basic mission was to carry large, bulky payloads into and out of short, rough dirt fields 2,000 ft long, even if an engine failed.

Designed to replace the C-130, it had considerably more capability, with a large fuselage meant to carry the largest tanks, trucks and vans in use. The YC-14 configuration had a high wing and large T-tail, with the flow from the 50,000lbs thrust turbofan engines exhausted over the top of the wing and passing over the upper surface of the flaps.

The flow was turned by the flaps and deflected to augment the aerodynamic lift of the configuration. It was the most efficient powered-lift system ever developed.
