At the end of World War II, the French [[French Air Force|Armée de l'Air]] was left with two primary transport aircraft: the Junkers [[Ju 52]] and the Douglas [[C-47 Skytrain|C-47]]. While both had given good service, they suffered from a common set of flaws: a nose-up attitude when at rest, complicating cargo stowing; restrictive side-loading doors; and limited payload.
 
Accordingly, in 1947 ''[[Direction Technique Industrielle]]'' organized a design competition for medium-weight cargo aircraft offering great flexibility in use. ''Société Nationale de Construction Aéronautique du Nord'' ([[SNCAN]]) answered with the Nord 2500, while their competitors, ''[[Société Anonyme des Ateliers d'Aviation Louis Breguet|Breguet]]'' and [[SNCASO]], offered the [[BR-891R Mars]] and [[SO-30C]] respectively. The Nord 2500, with its rear-opening clamshell doors allowing ease of loading, was considered the most promising, and DTI ordered two prototypes on [[April 27,]] [[1948]]. The first prototype took to the air on [[September 10,]] [[1949]] powered by two [[Gnome et Rhône]] 14R 1600- hp engines driving 3-bladed variable pitch propellers, but it was found to be too slow for most applications. The second prototype replaced the 14Rs with two [[SNECMA]]-built [[Bristol Hercules]] 738/9 2040-2,040 hp engines driving four-bladed propellers, and this model was rechristened the Nord 2501. DTI ordered 3 more preproduction Nord 2501s, which they flight-tested extensively against the similar [[Fairchild]] [[C-82 Packet]]. The N-2501 was found superior, and the first 34 were ordered on July 10, 1951. After an eventual production run of some 425 planes, the last Noratlas was constructed in 1961.
