The de Havilland Canada DHC-9 Bison is a large short takeoff and landing (STOL) military transport turboprop aircraft developed by de Havilland Canada for the Royal Canadian Air Force. The DHC-9 commonly performs tactical airlift missions. It has extraordinary STOL performance and is able to take off in distances much shorter than even much lighter aircraft can manage. The Bison is powered by four Pratt & Whitney Canada PW180 turboprops and can carry nearly 70,000 pounds of payload with it.

The Bison is somewhat longer and better powered than its OTL equivalent, the C-130J-30 Super Hercules. It can carry 69,360 pounds of cargo (85% of what the A400M Atlas carries)
